Aqua MTM Technology
Aqua MTM® is a non-intrusive tool, based on Magnetic Tomography Method (MTM) used for subsea pipeline inspections, jointly-developed by PETRONAS with Transkor-K. It evaluates defects in metal and weld joints, monitors any development of corrosion and assesses the state of corrosion based on the relative change in local stress levels in the pipeline. This has an advantage over subsea inspection of unpiggable pipelines done using a temporary launcher and auxiliary pumping to run an Inline Inspection (ILI) tool, which is often costly even for short distance pipeline.
The MTM carries no risk to pipelines, as it does not:
