SUBSEA METROLOGY

Subsea equipment

Most Subsea Metrologies are done in 3 phases: LBL acoustic (for horizontal length), Gyro survey for full orientation of the 2 hubs (heading, pitch and roll), and Bathymetric survey. In order to introduce their new INERTIAL method, IPOZ is offering to do the Gyro survey at no cost: we simply replace the Octans dive (no extra vessel time). The advantage of course is that we will deliver more accurate 3D orientation than a gyro (<0.1 deg), and as a bonus we deliver a full extra metrology report (Length, Depth difference, Full Orientations). Our motto: “Measure Twice, Cut Once” for the same price, call… 281-391-3700.

PIGGING

Pigging

IPOZ has successfully surveyed sewers and water line systems by delivering full orientation and position (from 1 to 400Hz) of all corrosion and fissures as well as any other observable attribute (manholes etc…). The clients expressed their interest in being able to deliver maps and profiles within a few hours to authorities, including high concern areas, with precise locations, before any catastrophic flood might happen. There is no need for line-of-sight.

INERTIAL SURVEY

Trees

A new Land Survey system for personnel and vehicles is developed by IPOZ, to take advantage of globally corrected GPS in an intelligent integration design. No more need for control networks (national or at project level)! Whether you are in Arkansas, Papua New Guinea or Brazil, you can start and tie your inertial traverse in the middle of nowhere. Inertial Survey means no more brush cutting for line-of-sight and therefore higher environmental protection, and high productivity, now without support for control points.

Oil & Seismic NEWS…

  • ExxonMobil paid no income tax in 2009. 06-04-10 Earlier, Forbes magazine published what the top US corporations paid in taxes last year. “Most egregious,” Forbes notes, is General Electric, which "generated $ 10.3 bn in pre-tax income, but ended up owing nothing to Uncle Sam. In fact, it recorded a tax benefit of $ 1.1 bn." Big Oil giant ExxonMobil, which last year reported a record $45.2 bn profit, paid the most taxes of any corporation, but none of it went to the IRS. http://www.gasandoil.com/goc/frame_cnn_company.htm
