As part of a study for the Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority (PTIL), we are looking for key suppliers to provide information and experience on available inspection and monitoring methods to be used on grouted connections between jackets and piles.
FORCE Technology Norway AS has been awarded a contract from the Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority (PTIL) to perform a study on available inspection and monitoring methods for grouted connections between jackets and piles. These connections are critical, and surveillance of these connections by instrumentation or inspection is of importance for the jacket’s structural integrity.
As part of the study, FORCE Technology will approach key suppliers to gather relevant information and experience and assess the maturity and quality of the available method. The presentation of available methods and the present maturity will be presented in the study and be publicly available. All information will be referenced to the supplier that has provided the input.
FORCE Technology’s assessment will consider availability of the method as well as elaborations regarding the probability of detection, and confidence in the results from a structural integrity perspective. The suppliers are encouraged to provide test and qualification records where available. Qualification records from third parties will be given more weight than internal qualification records. Conceptual studies without practical experience can also be shared, but these should be supported by sufficient technical descriptions.
For your technology to become part of the study, we invite you to share open information of any experience gained on relevant projects. This could include white papers presented on conferences or web pages, PowerPoint or similar presentations, conceptual studies or any other report presenting method, experience and/or results from jobs performed, related to grouted jacket/pile connections. Information may be shared under an NDA if required.
