Arup and EnerMech’s digitised inspection service aims to revolutionise the oil and gas industry

10 September, 2019

Arup and EnerMech have introduced a new digitised inspection service – Arup Inspection MInteg (AIM) – to enhance the inspection process for the oil & gas industry.


Created by Arup, the global engineering and consultancy firm, the new inspection technology – claimed to be the first of its kind – digitises the entire inspection workflow by leveraging automation, overhauling the current paper-based and outdated manual process. EnerMech’s specialist inspection division MInteg and Arup have signed a three-year agreement to complete inspections with AIM.

By using AIM, oil & gas organisations can expect to see inspections completed in significantly less time, resulting in reduced risk and costs. As part of the service, operators and asset owners will be able to access their interactive inspection data instantly at any time, to make informed decisions about asset repairs, replacements or improvements.

MInteg’s operations director, Patrick Gallagher, said: “AIM is a potential game-changer which offers enhanced inspection capabilities on oil & gas assets and can assist operators with prioritising the annual integrity management cycle. The potential time savings and subsequent cost reductions are considerable. In addition, AIM can significantly reduce the amount of time personnel will be required to work at height using rope access to inspect difficult-to-reach areas of offshore and onshore assets.”

Global expertise

Dr Bryan Horton, offshore digital leader, Arup, added: “The partnership between Arup and EnerMech brings global expertise to digitise an old way of working, drive high value and lower risk outcomes for operators. EnerMech is a leader in the industry and we are delighted to be working with them on this pioneering technology. Clients have benefitted significantly from both organisations working together – we look forward to this continuing.”

The two organisations will collaborate throughout the inspection process, further supporting operators to enhance assets based on the inspection findings via engineering expertise across the North Sea, Western Australia and Gulf of Mexico.
