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.”

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
