The oil and gas industry could generate an extra $1 billion in revenues if it were to develop new technologies in the field of offshore infrastructure inspection, a new report has found.

Many of the current techniques are inefficient and unnecessarily costly. Vessel inspection is usually done manually, according to the report’s authors, and can be hazardous and time consuming, as an engineer has to work in confined spaces. Corrosion is also difficult to trace because surfaces on oil and gas installation are covered with insulation which is expensive and time consuming to remove.
