HOUSTON -- ATP Oil has contracted Pulse Structural Monitoring to supply a real-time riser monitoring system for the ATP Titan platform to support the Telemark Hub field development in the Gulf of Mexico.

The ATP Titan is a self-contained, floating drilling and production triple-column spar structure. The real-time monitoring system will be installed on one of the production top tension risers (TTR) and linked to a topside data acquisition system.

The system will monitor the global response of the production TTR and enable rig personnel to capture data in real time. It will measure and quantify fatigue damage to the risers from wake-induced oscillations during high currents, the company says.
