HOUSTON -- 2H Offshore’s online riser monitoring system on Chevron's Tahiti platform in the Gulf of Mexico passed its six month service mark at the end of November.

The Tahiti riser monitoring system is the first fully operational real-time SCR monitoring system with both hang-off and touch down zone measurements. The hang-off portion was installed on Jan. 15, and the touch down zone instrumentation was connected on May 22.

The system, which comprises 13 INTEGRIstick dynamic curvature sensors, monitors the riser’s motions and strains in real time--data is automatically transferred to shore on a daily basis.
