Detection leads to releases of an alert beacon to the sea surface. The detection process does not involve use of active power or subsea data communication. Once at the surface, the individually asset-coded alert beacon activates and communicates via satellite to inform the asset owner of a potential issue.
WellSentinel Coral wellhead solutions have been developed for two oil and gas operators. The systems were installed on various subsea wellheads and are providing passive monitoring of the assets within the mature fields at varying water depths.
