Offshore

As offshore exploration moves to more remote and hazardous locations, the demand for safe and intelligent flow control systems intensifies. In these harsh environments it’s critical to have equipment that allows operators to continuously monitor the safety and efficiency of the rig.

Process safety and availability.

In an environment where safety and environmental protection are as critical as profitability and performance, operators are challenged to find the right mix of technologies to help them achieve both safety and profitability.

For today’s operators, process awareness is the central challenge because data is the key to overcoming all the most persistent challenges: safety, efficiency, maintenance, and staffing on the rig.

Without intelligent valve controls and diagnostics, the best case is diminished process efficiency, the worst case is that dangerous conditions can go unnoticed and unrepaired. Either condition is unacceptable and will result in additional cost to the operator. Without intelligent valve controls rigs will spend more time and money on maintenance and be required to keep more parts inventory and staff on board.

Intelligent valve controls reduce risk and save money

Metso has developed a series of automated valve packages and controls specifically designed for a life at sea. Built to explosion-proof standards these products also resist the impact of salt and water resulting from high seas and heavy wash-downs.

In addition to the most reliable hardware, our intelligent valve controls give operators unparalleled awareness and control of their processes. The result is that rigs operate more efficiently over longer periods of time and at a lower cost. This is achieved by allowing operators to optimize devices and monitor equipment to proactively resolve problems and deploy a preventative maintenance strategy.

Safe, reliable, efficient. Intelligent valve controls make the difference.

Intelligent valve controls from Metso are the ideal solution for offshore applications, where top class performance, comprehensive diagnostics and resistance to tough environmental conditions make the difference in safety and performance outcomes.

Benefits:

  • Provide real-time data to onshore centers to reduce staff needed on board
  • Identify and fix performance issues
  • Continuously monitor device health to develop predictive maintenance plans that focus efforts only on the equipment that needs service, reducing cost and inventory needed on board
  • Network redundancy and fail-safe systems including short circuit protection and Emergency Shutdown Valves keep the the rig and staff safe
