AISUS Wins First Contract in the Middle East

Leading offshore inspection company, AISUS has announced its first major contract win in the Middle East with North Oil Company (NOC). The six-figure agreement marks a significant milestone for the firm and provides the foundation on which the company plans to build its growing business in the Middle East.

The project, which is currently underway, will see AISUS carry out two caisson inspection programmes across two assets located in the Al Shaheen oilfield, off the north-east coast of Qatar. Further projects are planned for later in 2018.

NOC took ownership of the Al Shaheen oilfield field in July 2017. Located 80 km north of Doha in the Persian Gulf, it is one of largest and most complex fields in the world, comprising of 33 platforms, producing approximately 100 million barrels of oil per annum.

AISUS will utilise its gravity deployed ultrasonic scanning tool, SIRIUS-X. A tethered system which, when deployed from the topside, allows for inspection data to be captured above, within and below a variety of obstacles and diameter variations commonly encountered within caissons, without removing the tool.

Developed to maximise data accuracy and minimise the duration of inspections to meet the increasing demands of the offshore industry, it features a high torque rotary drive and a scanning speed of up to five metres per hour.

Stuart Lawson, managing director of AISUS commented: “Over the past 12 months we have seen an increase in demand for our capabilities across the globe, having made significant progress in solidifying our reputation for delivering reliable inspection programmes across the UK and Europe.

“This latest contract represents an important step forward in the execution of our strategy to expand both our services and geographical reach. With our strong technical capabilities and expanded geographical footprint, we anticipate strong growth from overseas business throughout 2018 and beyond.”

Over the past 12 months, AISUS has invested more than £200,000 in expanding and developing its fleet of cutting edge inspection technology. The company is now actively seeking to partner with local agents in a bid to drive further expansion across the Middle East.

AISUS is an innovative, technology driven company delivering remotely deployed visual and ultrasonic inspection solutions to the global oil and gas industry.
