Within the last few weeks, Talisman Energy UK and ChevronTexaco North Sea UK have started their 2005 underwater inspection campaigns. As with previous years, both companies are using Coabis to plan, execute and report on these works. This year however, both companies have also opted to use the Coabis-NETmc Marine DVRi digital video interface, to replace SVHS video tapes.
Talisman Energy UK are utilising the Coabis-NETmc interface for their platform-based ROV inspection campaign, being managed by Rovtech.
ChevronTexaco North Sea are using the Coabis-NETmc interface onboard the Highland Eagle, with a dual-ROV spread configuration, being managed by Rovtech and Technip.
The feedback from both jobs regarding the Coabis-NETmc digital video interface has been positive.
The decisions by Talisman Energy and ChevronTexaco North Sea to use Coabis-NETmc digital video follow successful use of the Coabis-NETmc DVRi interface by Shell Todd Oil Services, BP West Java and Shell Exploration & Production Europe.
