Chevron Selects BMT for Jack & St. Malo EFMS

(Press Release)
Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Chevron U.S.A. Inc. awarded a contract to BMT Scientific Marine Services Inc (BMT) to provide an Environmental and Facilities Monitoring System (EFMS) for the Jack & St. Malo Floating Production Semi-Submersible (FPSS) in the Gulf of Mexico. The EFMS monitors, logs, and displays data in real-time on the local environment and facility motions. It archives the data for assessing the FPSS’ integrity over time and interfaces with the facility’s other platform control systems. The EFMS is comprised of a computer console, topside and subsea remote sensor packages, BMT’s proprietary data acquisition system, and custom HMI user display screens. The Jack & St. Malo EFMS features BMT’s new deployment and retention scheme for Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) which protects the instruments and allows data collection during severe storm events.  BMT brings significant experience to this project, having previously provided EFMS systems on four other Chevron deepwater Gulf of Mexico projects.
