LONDONPulse Structural Monitoring, an Acteon company, has been awarded a contract with Total E&P Norge AS to provide a real-time integrity monitoring system that will measure platform displacement during drilling operations.

The two-year contract, with a two-year extension option, will support Total’s development drilling activities on the Martin Linge field in the NorwegianNorth Sea. Drilling will be conducted with the ultra-harsh environment jackup rig, the Maersk Intrepid.

The Pulse system consists of INTEGRIpod motion data loggers on the jackup cantilever and the jacket to measure the relative motion of the structures. All the sensors will be hardwired to a Pulse operator station, which will display key information in real time. Engineers will use the system to calibrate the global conductor fatigue model and the expected jackup and jacket motions based on in-field data. Ultimately, the system will help to confirm conductor performance during drilling operations.

Pulse opened an office in Bergen, Norway, in 4Q 2013, and this contract, the company’s first with Total E&P Norge, is part of its growing initiative to serve new customers in Norway.
