ABERDEEN, UKL&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) has awarded Cosasco a $3-million contract to provide corrosion monitoring systems to an unnamed supermajor in the Middle East.

Cosasco’s team will install 80 of the company’s MICROCOR ER probes, 48 corrosion coupon assemblies and 18 chemical injection points at two offshore fields, one gas and one oil. The company will also provide consultancy, manufacturing, in-field support, and a long-term warranty.

The company is currently manufacturing the products for delivery and installation at the offshore sites from later this year onwards. The corrosion monitoring system, Cosasco claims, will transmit high quality data to a monitoring server at a central location.

From there, the operator will be able to analyze the data to support decisions on extending asset life, maximizing production, and minimizing the risk of outages.

Challenges faced by the operator are said to include extreme high pressures and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in the throughput. MICROCOR probes are designed for H2S applications.
