Track 3 @ Klokkeklang Subsea Well Integrity
15:00 - 15:30 Subsea Condition Performance Monitoring
Jean - Yves Bressand
Subsea CPM services gives the operators the ability to more precisely monitor and calculate the remaining lifetime of critical components embedded into the subsea equipment. Through acquisition and processing of raw data from the subsea sensors, the system will report system integrity status, predict remaining lifetime of the equipment, and provide input to e.g. preventive maintenance planning to the Operator instead of today’s “fix-it-when-broken” maintenance strategy. CPM is based on using real-time data to prioritize and optimize maintenance resources. Observing the integrity of the system is known as condition monitoring. Such a system will determine the equipment's health, and act only when maintenance is actually necessary. Developments in recent years have allowed increased instrumentation and together with better tools for analyzing condition data, the maintenance personnel of today are more than ever able to correctly prioritize, plan and optimize ongoing maintenance. A fully implemented CPM system will contribute to system availability, prevent unplanned shutdowns and maximize return of investment for the producing asset. Two CPM systems for fields in the North Sea are currently under delivery and generic interfaces and expected values will be presented.
