Corrosion management services provider Cosasco has been awarded contracts totalling $3mn by Indian EPC major L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) to deliver corrosion monitoring systems to a key oil and gas operator in the Middle East.
Cosaco will install 80 of its flagship intrusive MICROCOR ER probes, 48 corrosion coupon assemblies and 18 chemical injection points at two offshore fields – one gas and one oil. The company is also providing consultancy, manufacturing, in-field support and a long-term warranty.
Cosasco is manufacturing the products for delivery and installation at the offshore sites from H2 2017. The corrosion monitoring system will transmit high quality data to a monitoring server at a central location.
From here, the operator will be able to analyse the data to support informed decision making that extends asset life, maximises production and minimises the risk of outages.
“This operator has a reputation for employing the most innovative technologies to deliver the highest quality operations. We have a long history with them, and their continued engagement with Cosasco is testament to the standard of our solutions,” Mark Smith, business unit director – EMEA for Cosasco, said without naming which company would use the products.
“What’s more, this project presents a complex technical and regulatory environment. Our team has extensive experience in these areas, which means we’re perfectly placed to deliver,” Smith was quoted as saying in a press release.
Challenges faced by the operator include extreme high pressures and hydrogen sulphide (H2S) in the throughput.
Cosasco’s MICROCOR probes are specifically designed for H2S applications. The probes are also unrivalled for their sensitivity, and the provision of world-class data.
