Cutting demo seals the deal

JFO completes complex cutting trial ahead of large scale Middle Eastern decommissioning project.

Earlier this year, James Fisher Offshore (JFO) hosted a four-day cutting demonstration at its headquarters in Aberdeenshire for a key Middle Eastern client ahead of a large scale decommissioning project.

The team was able to replicate specific and complex subsea cutting operations speedily and effectively to reassure the client ahead of planned mobilisation to the Middle East for the project later this year.

They were able to demonstrate the internal abrasive cutting of large diameter pipelines, hydraulic cutting of large concrete coated pipes and piles as well as pipe dredging and the lifting of cut pipes at full load with zero ground clearance.

Key to the demonstration’s success was the use of water abrasive suspension (WAS) cutting technology which is faster and more efficient than conventionally used systems. It links with a sophisticated verification system which provides real-time data analysis of the subsea cutting process, receiving measurement data from cutting sensors and relaying the information via a traffic light dashboard system to the operator to indicate cut success, speed and location.

Through offering this integrated package, JFO has proved it can efficiently and cost-effectively complete the decommissioning project with just one topside hydraulic/ancillary spread.
