A major North American pipeline operator was having difficulty inspecting deep well booster pumps tasked with moving crude oil. The pumps are designed to be removed from the 18’ deep steel wells for repair and maintenance, but the wells themselves are installed in concrete casings. Inspecting the wells requires the operator to take them out of service for extended periods of time to remove and inspect.

The pipeline operator approached Diakont to develop a robotic solution capable of inspecting the deep wells without removing them from the concrete. The robotic solution uses electromagnetic acoustic transducers (EMAT) and laser profilometry to provide comprehensive data for both the vertical well barrel and the horizontal flat cap at the bottom of the well.
