What We Do
Subsea Asset IM
A60N provides integrity management (IM) services to our clients to ensure their assets function safely and reliably. The purpose of IM is to prevent structural, containment and function failures through a structured process. Our areas of expertise include:
Subsea Production Systems (SPS)
Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines (URF)
Testing and Materials
A60N provides bespoke onshore and subsea testing services for both equipment and individual materials (metals, polymers and coatings). Our areas of testing expertise include:
Functionality of subsea equipment / interfaces
Corrosion and environmentally assisted cracking
A60N provides independent failure investigation services to our clients through a variety of methods. The service allows asset operators and original equipment manufacturers to:
Determine root cause of failure and identify contributing factors
Understand future risks
Assess mitigations / design changes to prevent similar failures in the future
Australian Oil and Gas conference 2020, chance to catch up with clients and partners Force Technology as well as showcase the latest Seaception camera.
Electrical Connector RCFAs
Our annual round of recovered electrical connector RCFAs underway.
Flexible Riser Testing - Timor Sea
Flexible riser annulus testing, production, water / gas injection risers completed on the Northern Endeavour.
Force Technology - FiGS® - Timor Sea
A60N support Force Technology with offshore personnel for Timor Sea pipeline survey.
Browse Basin - Deposit Management System Trial
Subsea Control Module (SCM) / Subsea Control Module Mounting Base (SCMMB) deposit management system test back from subsea deployment in the Browse Basin.
NERA Technology Tour - Houston
A60N selected as one of four companies to join NERA, OGTC, Unearthed and Station Houston in a new international program to help Australian companies in the energy resource sector by providing a pathway to collaborate and access new markets.
Electrical Connector DMS Recovered
Stuck electrical connectors are a common problem subsea in Australia due to calcareous deposits, sediment and biological growth. Our patented deposit management system back from a trial subsea.
Corrosion Journal - HISC Article Publication
Curtin Corrosion Centre - A60N paper "Hydrogen Induced Stress Cracking of Swaged Super Duplex Stainless Subsea Components" accepted for publication in CORROSION.
STAR Labs Phase 2 Recovery and Phase 3 Deployment
Electrical connectors deployed with and without Deposit Management Systems were recovered and inspected. An experiment in conjunction with Curtin University investigating the susceptibility of Super Duplex to crack when exposed to hydrogen generated by a cathodic protection system was installed
RISE Accelerator Program
A60N is pleased to announce that we have been selected to join the RISE Accelerator Program to assist in the further development of our patented Deposit Management Systems. The program is run by KPMG in conjunction with NERA, and takes place over a 12 week period.
NERA Leap Voucher
A60N has been awarded a NERA Leap Voucher to assist with the commercialisation of our patented subsea deposit management systems (DMS). The funds will be used to conduct further testing and development of the product line.
Flexible Riser Testing Campaign
A60N has recently completed an offshore campaign conducting flexible riser annulus testing in conjunction with 2H Offshore in the Gulf of Thailand.
