LONDON – BMT has won a contract to provide multiple marine monitoring systems for BP’s Mad Dog Phase 2 semisubmersible floating production facility in the Gulf of Mexico.
BMT will install its integrated marine monitoring system which comprises several sub systems relating to environmental monitoring and facility response. Its purpose will be to provide key data in real time to the offshore operators and to collect detailed data sets to support long-term integrity monitoring of the asset.
In addition, the company’s independent remote monitoring system (IRMS) will provide monitoring capability particularly during periods of evacuation due to hurricanes. The IRMS will continuously transmit data and imagery back to stakeholders onshore during the passage of a hurricane to help BP perform crucial asset monitoring during unmanned operations.
TheMad Dog Phase 2 FPS will have the capacity to produce up to 140,000 b/d of crude oil from up to 14 production wells.
