BMT sensors to monitor presalt risers offshore Brazil

Offshore staff

SAN DONATO MILANESE, Italy – Saipem has contracted BMT Scientific Marine Services to provide riser monitoring systems for two presalt projects offshore Brazil.

The two free-standing risers (FSHRs) and four steel lazy-wave risers (SLWRs) are destined for the Sapinhoá Norte and Cernambi Sul fields.

BMT says the equipment will monitor integrity of the risers by measuring strains, motions, attitude, and position of submerged portions of the riser strings.

Each FSHR system will incorporate BMT’s strain sensor assembly that allows individual sensors to be serviced or replaced by ROVs.

For the SLWRs, the company will provide its polypropylene-welded attachment scheme for attaching strain sensors to submerged, insulated pipes.
