Woods Hole Group Awarded BPTT Contract

Friday, March 30, 2007
Woods Hole Group, Inc. of Falmouth, Massachusetts has been contracted by BP Trinidad and Tobago, LLC (bpTT) to design, build and install a meteorological and oceanographic measurement system on the bpTT Cassia oil and gas production complex, offshore eastern Trinidad. Woods Hole Group, Inc. will provide system design, integration, installation, and real time data display along with monthly data monitoring and archiving during the 24-month project.

Measurement of the predominant and spurious currents and waves along with their impact in this environment is important for the continued safe and efficient operation of bpTT’s production platforms off the east coast of Trinidad. Winds and waves in this area are predominantly from the northeast and east, while the stronger currents, associated with large anti-cyclonic rings that have detached from the North Brazil Current, tend to come from the south.

The bpTT Cassia Metocean system will consist of two Nortek AWAC Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers arranged to generate a continuous profile of currents through the 90 M water column and measure wave height and direction at the installed location, along with wind, barometric pressure, and temperature/relative humidity sensors. The systems will be integrated into the Woods Hole Group, Inc. proprietary Integrated Real Time System (IRMS) to acquire and store all raw data and to display the processed data on the Cassia production complex for operational use in real time. Through a web based data server application, bpTT and their affiliate offices of BP in Houston will be able to see the real time processed data through any BP web enabled access port.
