UK: BMT Provides Critical Analysis and Reliability Assessments of Stingray PRM System

BMT Reliability Consultants Ltd, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, the leading international maritime design, engineering and risk management consultancy, has announced its latest project with Stingray Geophysical Ltd, a TGS company. This partnership saw BMT provide critical analysis and reliability assessments during the development of the wet-end array of Stingray’s innovative fibre-optic Fosar® seabed seismic sensing system.

Stingray Geophysical, a provider of reliable, cost-effective seismic Permanent Reservoir Monitoring (PRM) solutions to the global oil and gas industry, and its manufacturing partner, Atlas Elektronik UK Ltd, turned to BMT to provide a System Model and Configuration Assessment. This assessment was then used to model the impact of design option enhancements developed by Stingray and Atlas. These enhancements were designed to maximise the fault tolerance of the system architecture and assure the reliability of the installed array over prolonged periods of up to 25 years of operation.

Andrew Cooper, Managing Director of BMT Reliability Consultants comments: “Permanent Reservoir Monitoring solutions such as Fosar enable the monitoring of production-induced changes in reservoir behaviour over time. Used as part of a reservoir management strategy, this can provide oil and gas companies with the opportunity to increase production and recoverable reserves. BMT Reliability Consultants is committed to helping the evolution of such products by delivering reliability risk assessments that form a key part of design development.

The speed at which technologies evolve in this industry means that companies like Stingray are constantly looking at enhancing their solutions. We are delighted to be continuing to work with the team and support them in their drive to provide the most technologically advanced PRM solution.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
