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
  • Displacement
  • Vibration subsea & EEx zone

Vibration subsea and EEx Zone

We provide systems for monitoring high frequency vibrations (>1Hz), both subsea and topside, based on strain measurements and accelerations. Subsea monitoring may be combined with hydrophones, and is ROV/diver installable. Topside may include EEx Zone requirements.

Displacement

We use LVDT (linear variable differential transformer) and hydro acoustic sensors to measure displacement from a micro meter to meter range. This may be combined with other sensor systems to provide additional information. Systems are custom built to suit the application.

Installation and tie-in operations

We can assist with data acquisition during installation and/or tie-in operations, using a variety of our available sensors, recording critical loads.

Consultancy and expertise

The technology we hold 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. FORCE Technology Norway specialises in technical integrity, and the ability to correctly evaluate and predict historical and future performance of offshore assets.
