Real-Time Monitoring and Data Acquisition
The DrillASSURE system from Pulse Structural Monitoring, an Acteon company, provides enhanced real-time monitoring and data acquisition for wellhead and conductor fatigue. The system is designed to ensure the structural integrity of the drilling riser and wellhead system by measuring riser and riser-stack motion response. Real-time direct access to the riser-response data is available without recovering the instruments, enabling operators to view and analyze information instantly. The tool mitigates risk of damage to the riser and wellhead during riser installation and retrieval, and it tracks fatigue loading on the wellhead and conductor, thereby extending asset life. The system also improves understanding of the relationship between riser response and environmental loading, thus increasing confidence and assurance to maximize drilling uptime. It also helps drillers reduce unnecessary costs and operational downtime by optimizing maintenance and inspection activities, and it provides an important operational safety tool, supplying critical information needed to improve decision making.
