Saipem awards presalt riser monitoring contract to BMT

Offshore staff

HOUSTONSaipem has selected BMT Scientific Marine Services, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd., to supply the riser integrity monitoring systems for the Lula Norte and Lula Extremo Sul developments in the Santos basin presalt offshore Brazil.

The system will measure bending moments and tensile forces in risers to provide an understanding of the risers' condition. Data from these systems are then used to verify riser design models, ultimately leading to long-term improvements in riser design.

The Lula Norte and Lula Extremo Sul projects will feature systems that incorporate BMT’s ROV-Serviceable Subsea Strain Sensor Assembly. This allows for continuous monitoring and data collection, preserving the absolute bending and tension measurement while a single sensor is removed and replaced.
