BMT Bags EFMS Contract from Chevron (USA)

Chevron U.S.A. Inc. has awarded a contract to BMT Scientific Marine Services Inc (BMT) to provide an Environmental and Facilities Monitoring System (EFMS) for the Chevron operated Big Foot Tension Leg Platform (TLP) in the Gulf of Mexico.

The EFMS monitors, logs and displays data in real-time on the local environment and facility motions. It archives the data for assessing the TLP’s integrity over time and interfaces with the facility’s other platform control systems. The EFMS is comprised of a computer console, topside and subsea remote sensor packages, BMT’s proprietary data acquisition system, and custom user display screens.

The Big Foot EFMS will measure factors such as wind speed and direction, platform position, wave frequency and high frequency platform motions, air gap, surface currents and draft.

BMT provides innovative integrity monitoring systems for a wide range of floating offshore oil facilities including their subsea risers and mooring systems. BMT delivers custom engineered products from design through procurement, assembly, installation and aftermarket service. In addition, BMT deploys temporary monitoring systems for performance assessment, acceptance trials and forensic investigations. In combination with extensive monitoring system experience, BMT provides data management and technical analysis of data acquired by the various permanent and temporary integrated marine and structural integrity systems.

BMT has an excellent track record in supplying 60+ major Platform Integrity Monitoring Systems to operators in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore West Africa, Brazil and Malaysia. The company has previously provided Environmental and Facility Monitoring Systems to four of Chevron’s Gulf of Mexico Floating Production Units (Genesis, Tahiti, Blind Faith, and Jack & St. Malo).
