V-LIFE Insulation Resistance Recovery.

Recover the Electrical Integrity of Subsea Circuits.

V-LIFE is a preventative and active ‘healing’ solution for low insulation resistance caused by water ingress.

The most common cause of subsea electrical failures is the ingress of water into the cable insulation, which decreases the IR and may produce short circuits or leakage to the earth. These faults often lead to loss of power and/or communications to subsea equipment and potentially halt production from subsea wells.

Providing a 200 Times Insulation Resistance Increase for an Operator in the Gulf of Mexico

In this case study, discover how V-LIFE was used to avoid a threat to the continued production of a subsea production control system, resulting in a 200 times increase in insulation resistance (IR) within a week. Six months later, the channel continues to provide strong and consistent IR results; providing a value-added solution.

This case study is an example of how V-LIFE recovered insulation resistance by 200 times, providing optimum operational levels for operator in the Gulf of Mexico.
