ECA to Conduct AUV Autonomous Inspection Sea Trials in the Deepwater GoM

The offshore sea trial using the Alistar 3000 Inspection AUV was designed by BP to evaluate the technology. It will be located in the company’s deepwater King Field (1700msw) in the Gulf of Mexico and will comprise the following three levels of trials: Passive pipeline inspection: Alistar 3000 will locate and follow a pipeline at various altitudes above the pipeline whilst recording video, sonar data and actual position of the flowline. Active pipeline inspection: Alistar 3000, using on-board sensors that can automatically detect anodes or anomalies whilst tracking the flowline, will actively modify its mission to carry out closer General...
