Pulse Supplies Monitoring System for ATP Titan
Pulse Structural Monitoring, an Acteon company, has been contracted by ATP Oil & Gas to supply a real-time riser monitoring system for the ATP Titan platform supporting the Telemark Hub field development in the Gulf of Mexico.
The ATP Titan platform is a self-contained, floating drilling and production triple-column spar structure. The real-time monitoring system will be installed on one of the production top tension risers (TTR) and linked to a topside data acquisition system. The gathered data can be evaluated offshore or transmitted to shore on demand for further evaluation and integrity management purposes.
The system will incorporate Pulse's award-winning, field-proven INTEGRIM range of sensors to monitor the global response of the production TTR and enable rig personnel to capture data in real time.
The primary objective of the riser monitoring system is to measure and quantify fatigue damage to the risers from wake-induced oscillations (WIO) during high current events in real time. The gathered data will be used to ensure the integrity of the riser system, especially after severe events. The monitoring system, which is fully remotely operated vehicle and diver serviceable, features Pulse
award winning instrumentation INTEGRIstick® dynamic curvature sensors to measure the bending strain at the critical fatigue locations. The monitoring system also includes INTEGRIpod-HM high-precision motion loggers placed along the upper span of the riser string. The real-time, fully synchronized data stream from the motion loggers will provide a more global understanding of riser movement.
"We are excited to support the ATP Titan and the Telemark Hub project with our structural monitoring expertise, project execution and full offshore support team. Pulse technology will be utilized to set another milestone in real-time monitoring of subsea risers and structures. It will provide critical riser operational data to help us understand better the phenomenon of wake-induced and vortex-induced vibrations to maximize uptime and reduce risk," said Daniel Reagan, Pulse's senior engineer for structural monitoring.
