Offshore Case Studies

The use of VideoRays in the Offshore Oil & Gas Industry is growing rapidly, as recent results of inspections of facilities and vessels around the world show that this is compelling technology. Inspections can often be done more rapidly, efficiently, safely, and at lower cost than other traditional methods. In many cases there are critical areas and mechanisms that cannot be inspected safely by ANY other method. The extreme portability, small size, low power consumption of modern micro ROVs combined with their depth, current handling, and tether pulling capabilities combine to provide completely new tactics, techniques, and procedures.

This presentation covers case studies where Steve has used VideoRays to support offshore oil and gas projects. From Russia's Siberian LNG, to an FPSO in the South China Sea, to the Gulf of Mexico, photos and video clips will demonstrate how VideoRay technology is used in the offshore environment. Steve will explain how he won the jobs, planned for the mission, adjusted and compensated when things were not working, and completed the mission each time.
