The SEAR JIP is currently on its Phase V (2018)
The scope of work consists of:
- Continuing to populate SEAR reliability database, which allows assessment of operators’ equipment performance and comparison of vendors’ performance for equipment installed in Australian waters.
- Facilitating a ‘lessons learned’ forum , where operators share experience about equipment performance. All learning are captured on the SEAR cloud-based reliability database.
- Delivering the Transforming Australia Subsea Equipment Reliability (TASER) testing program to evaluate performance of new technologies to prevent calcareous deposition and marine growth on subsea hardware.
- Investigating the possible cause(s) of oil & gas subsea controls umbilical gassing and fluid migration sources of gases and fluids.
