We assist in maintaining control of the current status of pipelines, risers, structures and wells. This is an essential part of safety and quality assurance, offshore.
Confidence through accurate and real-time monitoring
In order to maintain safety and ensure full continuous operation, it is vital to prevent excess utilisation of components. Strain, curvature, vibration, pressure, temperature and movement are all factors that affect the remaining service life of an asset.
We hold more than twenty years of experience, and our solutions have all been field proven. Having our systems installed allows you to make more qualified decisions regarding utilisation and life extension, which can lead to considerable cost savings.
Replacement and unexpected shut-downs can be postponed and prevented. This provides increased operational reliability and safety, as well as prolonged service life, while at the same time meeting government requirements in a cost effective way.
We provide structural monitoring for:
- Drilling & workover operations
- Hybrid risers
- Foundation & grouting
- Jackets & structures
- Vibration subsea & EEx zone
Jacket and structures
We provide systems for measuring both loads and structural response on jackets and structures. The loads are typically from current, waves and wind. This is combined with strain and motion sensors on various members. The system is based on both in-house and third party sensors, integrated into one system, on-line or battery driven. The sensors may be installed by diver or ROV, using clamps or magnets. The data is used to verify design, calibrate structure models and in connection with service life extension.
Our in-house capabilities with regards to structural analyses and lifetime extension provides a deeper foundation for understanding structural response, which allows us to optimise the monitoring system to provide required data for further analyses.
Consultancy and expertise
Our technology is sought after and in use worldwide, with large clients in the forefront of the oil and gas industry. This is partly due to the increased focus on health, safety and environment (HSE) in the offshore industry, which has lead to operators choosing a more pre-emptive approach.
We specialise in technical integrity, and the ability to correctly evaluate and predict historical and future performance of offshore assets. Please contact us if you have any questions or inquiries.
