FLEXIBLE RISERS

The most common integrity issues relating to flexible risers are mechanical damage to the outer sheath or a venting system's failure. These can lead to a pressure breach of the out sheath and flooding of the riser annulus, ultimately weakening the riser integrity through corrosion of the internal wire. Sonomatic's engineers are extremely familiar with these types of issues (35% of flexibles experience issues of this kind) and can help clients address these early, well before they occur. Using our proprietary ROV-iT system, the latest technology and field-proven scanners, Sonomatic's experts can determine if an external sheath failure has occurred in the riser systems and then assist to extend the lifespan of flexible pipes, saving the client time and money.
