LONDON -- Nexen Petroleum UK has used a real-time system for monitoring sea state when moving the jackup Galaxy III alongside the Buzzard wellhead platform.

A data telemetry was installed using receiving stations on the Buzzard platform and on the rig. Emu, in conjunction with Nexen, developed a real-time spectral interface to isolate longer swell energy from locally generated wind waves.
