Offshore Piping & 3D Scanning

When an offshore service provider had a number of failed attempts to unblock a high pressure cement line, Eng-Cad were asked to investigate an engineering solution to remove and re-install the pipework.

Once the existing line was surveyed, it became very obvious that replacing ‘like for like’ in this case was not practical for removal, replacement or future maintenance activities. Taking that into account it was decided that a 3D laser scan survey should also be undertaken during the dimensional control survey of the existing line. The laser scan survey provided 3D data accurate to within +/- 5mm of the entire area concerned.

This data allowed our engineers and designers to provide a number of engineering solutions/proposals from the office without the need to return to the offshore facility. An AutoCAD 3D model was then created and we were able to produce construction isometric drawings of the new pipeline with the added assurance of no on-site clashes.
