The high-level overview of a total hose changeout project, including OCIMF hose testing of subsea and floating hoses. Find out how long the hose changeout project normally takes, what the risks are and how to mitigate them. Reduce risks, save time and money with a streamlined hose change out.
Hose manufacturers typically recommend SPM hose change out after 5 years but it may also be needed at other times due to hose failure or excessive wear. Replaced hoses should undergo OCIMF testing to determine wear patterns and root causes of failure, which will assist in ensuring that the shortened lifespan is not repeated in the new hoses. Knowing what to expect from your hose change out and the OCIMF testing process will ensure that you get it right.
