Contactless monitoring systems for the offshore production platforms

Год публикации

The report describes a contactless system for monitoring the technical condition of the production platforms. Technological binding of the caissons of offshore platforms requires the creation of a monitoring system. A monitoring system has been proposed to reduce the risk of operating production platforms with caissons. The complex of equipment for the monitoring system of the platform is described. The monitoring system is based on the use of the method of magnetic tomography.

The report is prepared based on the results of the work carried out within the framework of the Program of the State Academies of Sciences for 2013-2020. Section 9 "Earth Sciences"; directions of fundamental research: 131. "Geology of hydrocarbon fields, fundamental problems of geology and geochemistry of oil and gas, scientific foundations for the formation of a raw materials base for traditional and non-traditional sources of hydrocarbon raw materials" and 132 "Integrated development and conservation of the Earth's interior, innovative development of mineral fields and deep processing of mineral raw materials", within the framework of the project "The Fundamental Basis of Innovative Technologies in the Oil and Gas Industry", No. AAAA-A16-116031750016-3.

This paper was prepared for presentation at the SPE Russian Petroleum Technology Conference held in Moscow, Russia, 22 – 24 October 2019.
