For long tie-backs and process systems, sand monitors are crucial tools in minimizing the risk of flowlines or vessels filling with sand. The SenCorr system represents state-of-the-art measurement technology, integrated for cost-efficient installation and operation, and with the benefits of digital 24 bit A/D data conversion, offering high resolution, most important to operators' ability to detect small changes.
CorrOcean's specialized sand erosion ER probes directly measure the accumulated erosive effect of solids in the flow, giving reliable information even in situations where the sand content may be low or masked by flow noise and vibration. The probes measure erosion with high accuracy and, with a rapid response to sand production, are ideal both for optimizing production (choke valve settings) and for predicting the location and extent of maximum erosion in the flow system. Probe data can be combined with CorrOcean's proprietary erosion model to predict erosion in any critical pipe component. Knowing likely sand erosion rates at various flow rates, the operator can optimize production rates accordingly.
Dave Rees, president of CorrOcean, Inc. in Houston said "This award follows others earlier this month for our SenCorr sensors to be deployed on other deepwater projects off West Africa and in the Gulf of Mexico. CorrOcean is committed to market leadership and innovation in subsea monitoring technology, and this award helps consolidate our position."
