2H Offshore to Suppy Monitoring System for Azurite Drilling FPSO

2H Offshore, an Acteon Company, has been contracted to supply a flex-joint monitoring system for Murphy's Azurite Floating Drilling Production Storage and Offloading (FDPSO) drilling riser offshore, Republic of Congo, West Africa. The deepwater Azurite development is located in the Mer Profonde Sud Block.

The system will incorporate 2H's field proven INTEGRI™ range of sensors to monitor the differential flex-joint angles of the drilling riser and will allow rig personnel to capture data in real time.

The FDPSO is the first of its kind, and utilizes a drilling riser with a Subsea Isolation Devise (SID) and surface BOP. 2H Offshore Inc developed the design of the drilling riser system from concept to detailed design.

"Following detailed design, we are excited to support the Murphy Azurite FDPSO project with our flex-joint monitoring system. It will provide critical drilling riser operational data to help maximize uptime and reduce risk," said Himanshu Maheshwari, 2H's Engineering Specialist for structural monitoring.
