Oil Field and Production Support

Suspended beneath a platform in Cook Inlet

Kakivik’s field crews have served as the exclusive provider of NDT and corrosion-related services on some of the largest oil fields on the North Slope of Alaska.

This success and record of performance has been earned through high standards of workmanship and an unfailing commitment to open communication with asset owners and operators.

3D Laser Scanning

Deployed 3 dimensional laser scanning technology (Corrscan™) for accurate measurement and mapping of irregular surfaces.

API 1163

Performed comprehensive in-line inspection (ILI) data assessments as well as ILI monitoring tool accuracy assessments in accordance with API 1163.

AutoCAD Support

Provided AutoCAD support to corrosion related programs including baseline values, corrosion damaged areas, monitoring points, coupon and inhibitor injection point locations, weld packs, road crossings, repair locations, damaged insulation locations, pipe supports, recur dates, and extent of damage analyses.

Corrosion Monitoring

Developed and managed corrosion inhibitor injection programs to optimize the injection of inhibitor. Conducted corrosion monitoring programs to ensure that inhibitor injection rates are sufficient to mitigate corrosion.

Performed corrosion monitoring of barrier walls including design, development, installation, training of on-site personnel, and data analysis.

Data Management

Developed numerous Corrosion Data Management Programs including data evaluation, trending, establishment of monitoring frequencies, database maintenance, and chemical inhibitor monitoring.

Engineering Analysis

Developed engineering defect analysis calculations and procedures in accordance with API 510, 570, 653, National Board Inspection Code (NBIC), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE), and customer specifications.

Systems analyzed include high pressure gas systems from 2” to 36” in diameter and operating at pressure ranges of 100 PSI to 4,000 PSI; water injection piping systems; oil transportation lines up to 42” in diameter with pressures ranging from atmospheric to 5,500 PSI; instrument tubing; and industrial waste and sea water piping systems.

Metallurgical Analysis

Conducted metallurgical analyses to determine failure modes and causes.

Protective Coatings

Developed coating application and handling procedures for various service environments.

Quality Management

Performed work under numerous Master Service Agreements for corrosion management services encompassing cathodic protection monitoring, database management, data acquisition, AutoCAD and design services, data analysis, conceptual studies, historical data reviews, longwave technology introduction and corrosion engineering.

Managed and directed corrosion quality assurance programs including oversight of field inspections, data management and reporting.

Managed automated systems and ultrasonic services including maintenance, development and expansion of current ultrasonic (UT), Magnetic Flux Exclusion (MFE), automated UT and radiographic scanning services and capabilities.

Repair Program Design and Oversight

Provided design and implementation oversight of repairs for pressure vessels, tanks, boilers, heaters, and piping damaged by corrosion. Oversight has included development of welding procedures for repairs and provision of on-site technical support during repairs.

Technical Writings

Developed comprehensive Operations & Maintenance and training manuals in accordance with code and federal regulatory requirements.
