Reduce costs and simplify operations. Mooring Line Montoring is a “set and forget” system that helps operators reduce the need for costly inspections. Neither maintenance nor personnel is required, as the autonomous sensor system immediately transfers data through a satellite alarm if a mooring line failure is detected.
Typical Challenges for Operators
Do any of these apply to your subsea fields in operation?
- You continuously weigh the need for integrity control versus the cost of ROV inspections
- You believe most of your equipment is ok, however you send out ROVs to check parts of it annually or bi-annually
- The current subsea infrastructure makes it expensive and complex to add monitoring even when you want to
The 4Subsea mooring line monitoring system was developed to detect failures in mooring lines immediately and without the need for costly inspections. The system consists of a sensor that detects abnormal effects and an autonomous floating satellite communication modem. The sensor can release the modem to transmit information to all required units once a predefined condition is met.
4Subsea has provided monitoring services on more than 50 drilling and completion campaigns. The same system with additional sensors is also being used for integrity monitoring of wellheads, drilling risers, and conductors.
