Sonardyne Delivers Sentry Sonar for Deployment in US GoM

Sonardyne’s Sentry IMS in the US Gulf of Mexico

Sonardyne International has delivered a sonar monitoring system to an unnamed US oil company, to reinforce its deepwater offshore asset integrity assurance in the US Gulf of Mexico

The Sonardyne’s wide-area Sentry Integrity Monitoring Sonar (IMS), has been deployed on the seafloor at more than 2,000 meters  water depth.

Sentry IMS, which can be installed short-term or permanently, is able to detect, classify and localize subsea releases of hydrocarbons from either the seafloor or oil and gas field production infrastructure.

In this latest deployment, Sentry is being deployed under a six-month trial that will demonstrate its ability to provide real-time subsea asset monitoring.

Stephen Auld, global business manager for Asset Integrity Monitoring at Sonardyne, said, “For deep water, hard to access fields, robust field management philosophies are essential for operators to assure the ongoing integrity of their systems. Having access to reliable near real-time warning systems that are able to identify and locate sources of leak events, should they happen, is a significant benefit to both the environment and offshore exploration and production companies.”
