Subsea gas leakages can be inspected from the mainland

There exist more than 300 permanent subsea installations on the Norwegian continental shelf. Their lifetime is limited and regular maintenance is required to keep the installations operational. Increased focus on cost effective solutions within the oil and gas industry will in the future probably lead to the implementation of more automatic systems for surveillance of subsea installations. A reduction of maintenance cost  is possible by using novel technology from image analysis for detecting and monitoring oil and gas leakages.
