Emerson, Stork collaborate on UKCS monitoring project

Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway and ABERDEEN, UK, -  Stork has installed Emerson Process Management’s Roxar SandLog wireless sand erosion monitoring solutions on a major North Sea operator’s installation.  

The collaboration with Stork marks the first installation of the Roxar SandLog wireless monitors in the UK continental shelf (UKCS).

The new wireless devices provide online monitoring of sand erosion from the field, helping to extend equipment life and increase production from reserves.

Stork’s Monitoring Solutions capabilities can provide operators with the means to monitor the rate of erosion on their assets, identifying and continuously reporting on areas of concern, and enabling the planning of effective remedial work

The Roxar SandLog Wireless transmitters can reduce installation costs in comparison to wired online systems and enable monitoring in previously inaccessible areas, Emerson says. They are one element of Emerson’s complete asset integrity system that also includes the Roxar CorrLog corrosion monitoring transmitters. Operators can also access Roxar Fieldwatch, Emerson’s windows-based field monitoring system for rigorous analysis of the data generated.

The Roxar CorrLog and SandLog wireless transmitters are certified to industry standards, including ATEX.
