The design and maintenance of equipment for the offshore oil industry are fraught with logistical and safety complications.
Challenges to consider
With a fluctuating market, operational costs must be kept at a minimum. One of the major contributors to operational cost is maintenance. Being able to find ways to improve maintenance efficiently is key to controlling its cost.
Working in remote locations drastically reduces access and time spent on site. Getting all the required measurements and documentation in a small window of time with no margin for error can be an unsurmountable challenge.
Harsh and unfavorable weather conditions will drastically impact the efficiency and ability to accurately document existing plant conditions. In addition, with every minute spent on site, crew safety gets exceedingly affected.

All decisions stem from what information you have availabe at your fingertips. With 3D laser scanning data, you capture more than individual measurements, you are able to see the bigger picture. This type of data also allows you to leverage intelligent software that detects issues and prevents costly mistakes.
When it comes to remote locations, making sure all data is available without having to send crew members out to capture additional data is of utmost importance. Not only will it save a lot of time and reduce cost, but also prevent unnecessary safety issues.
With the ability to use weather resistant 3D laser scanning equipment, accuracy is always assured. Beyond the accuracy, with the speed of laser scanning, time on site is greatly reduced, increasing crew safety.
Laser Scanning Saves Millions in Offshore Oil Platform Upgrades
When Hurricane Katrina roared through the Gulf of Mexico in 2005, it took more than 1,200 lives and did billions of dollars in property damage…
The security, accessibility and usability of your laser scanning reality capture data is crucial to maximizing operational efficiency and obtaining the best return on your investment. Leica Geosystems software leads the industry for transforming vast amounts of digital data into intuitive yet powerful information assets.
