Pulse Structural Monitoring, an Acteon company, has won a major contract with Chevron U.S.A. Inc. for the provision of an integrated monitoring system for the Big Foot Extended Tension Leg Platform (ETLP) located in the Gulf of Mexico.
Pulse will use its experience gained on the Chevron Tahiti riser monitoring project to execute and deliver this project. Jeff Diestler, business development manager at Pulse Structural Monitoring commented on the contract win. “This contract solidifies Pulse as an industry leader in production riser monitoring. Our outstanding track record and innovative approach to challenging problems provide confidence to our clients about the integrity of their assets in challenging environments.”
Successful monitoring of the Big Foot ETLP will require a combination of components to ensure the integrity of the tensioner assembly, tensioner and top tension risers. Pulse’s proprietary INTEGRITM range, a line of modular sensing instrumentation tools, will be leveraged to handle this complex offshore monitoring including integrated real-time data processing and transmittal to shore. INTEGRITM sensors have been successfully deployed to over 500 subsea applications globally, and have logged over 2,000,000 operational hours. The INTEGRITM range has a proven track record in severe deepwater environments.
Pulse is a leader in monitoring of offshore subsea systems and the associated structures, with a strong presence in the major oil producing areas around the world.
