After working as the Production and Operations Team Leader and ensuring compliance with Regulatory authorities, dealing with many third parties we began to understand the potential of an idea that had been thought of many years prior.
The work that went on behind the scenes organising a simple weld repair of a spool often meant a production shutdown, mobilisation of a Scaffolder, Habitat technician, pipe fitter, welder, NDT technician and a surveyor, not to mention the scaffold, habitat, weld procedures, hot work permits, consumables, special helicopters, OSVs etc. – The CRISM fitting was born from lack of other cheap, quick and reliable options.
Up until now a complete spool replacement required: precise measurements to be taken when isometric drawings were not available. The spool was ordered on a long lead time, then had to be pressure tested, often witnessed by a surveyor, and finally it would be shipped to be installed on the facility. Generally a spool replacement is less cost effective than manufacturing your own spool with the use of CRISM fittings then and there and with the CRISM fitting soon to be Class approved why would you use anything else?
