Measuring environmental and structural loading on offshore platforms, wellheads and risers can generate cost savings by extending operating life, identifying design conservatism and providing long-term integrity assurance and design verification. Our measurement services include vessel responses and we can supply standard systems from our pool of field-proven equipment; alternatively we can develop customised solutions using sensors and instrumentation to suit individual project requirements.Learn More Get in Touch
Our range of offshore measurement services provides essential information for the implementation of cost-effective solutions, to enhance safety and extend the operating life of offshore structures. Our extensive experience in the offshore oil and gas industry allows us to provide accurate data interpretation, data analysis and subsequent results followed by practical solutions and recommendations. Our expertise extends to the installation of monitoring systems in hazardous area environments using intrinsically safe equipment. For operating requirements in the offshore industry, we provide fast and efficient services for prompt and accurate solutions to problems.
We collate, analyse, interpret, and report all the recorded subsea and topside data, tailored to your requirements including quality control and presentation of the data, fatigue calculations, or spectral and modal analysis of structural responses.
Structural monitoring systems for platforms and offshore infrastructure
Our MS Python Monitoring System provides a cost-effective means of monitoring the integrity of jacket structures for design verification, to evaluate the performance of the structures by comparing measured data with design. MS Python System measures the acceleration response of platforms and compares it to the wave motion. Significant damage can be identified by a change in natural frequencies exhibited by the platform.
The measurement of environmental and structural parameters for jack-up platform monitoring provides verification of the performance of the structures in extreme conditions and information on foundation conditions. To minimise downtime and enhance safety, it is also used to verify actual sea states and rig motions during jack up and jack down operations.
Construction support for offshore operations
Our range of structural measurement services support safe and efficient offshore construction operations combining the measurement of wave height, vessel motion, movement and stress and load transfer motion to allow safe and efficient offshore heavy lifts, pipelaying operations and tow and transportation of offshore infrastructure.
Construction support services include:
The MS Python Offshore Platform Structural Monitoring System provides state-of-the-art and highly reliable monitoring solutions over offshore structures and it’s key elements.
The structural monitoring provides the following range of services to the Offshore Industry:
The central data acquisition unit should have enough channels to record data received from accelerometers and several additional channels to record other sensors such as:
Significant changes to the platform's structural integrity could be detected by monitoring its natural frequencies and comparing the response characteristics to agreed upon criteria. With this data it will be possible to:
MS Python boiler remote health monitoring and leak detection system will provide real-time data of temperature change, corrosion and deposits, cracks and detect leaks in real-time. You will get every piece of information you need to allocate the exact spot and identify the nature of the problem, so that you can make an informative decision.
Deliver complete solutions using FBG and distributed fiber-optic sensors and innovative, high degree of freedom (DOF) sensors.
Reliable data collection and analysis will detect early performance degradation in a timely manner, to limit risk and effects of potential disasters.
Our solution provides complete remote control over the reliability of offshore platforms and structures with simultaneous monitoring of such parameters as temperature distribution over the height of the tanks, the thickness of the deposits layer on the inner walls and the bottom, monitor the environmental situation around the storage tankы of all sizes and configurations. It also helps better schedule maintenance works and reduce operational costs.
Our monitoring system can be easily deployed on already existing stuructures or even at the stage of construction, which allows to perform structural monitoring even during construction. This allows the consructors to prioritize remedial actions when resources are at a premium. Reduce the time at risk of a failed member, minimizing the probability of catastrophic failure. Monitor systems installed on offshore facilities, especially those requiring extension of operating life.
Well documented data of instrumental observations play a key role in the design of similar objects, you can optimize the costs of the choice of materials and to avoid mistakes in the design and calculations for stability.
Monitor damage or failure caused by extraordinary events such as a fires, storm, earthquakes, explosions etc. This allows engineers and consultants to make preliminary structural assessments.
