The last February 6th, Tecnatom do Brasil performed inspection activities in PetroRio´s oil platform Polvo A in Campos basin. PetroRio is actually the biggest independent oil producer operating in the Brazilian market.
The service consisted in phased array inspection of two pins in the platform´s drilling top drive and is part of PetroRio´s maintenance program that precedes a new drilling campaign scheduled still for the first semester of 2019. The technical approach uses the previous experience of Tecnatom do Brasil as a procedure provider to inspect bolts and studs in offshore structures, also cylindrical parts with cracking susceptibility.
The work is a pilot that aims the consolidation of phased array technique inside PetroRio´s maintenance program promoting an expectation to a crescent presence of Tecnatom Group in South American oil market.
