W R Systems, Ltd (WRSystems) have been awarded a contract to supply its laser-based Emsys Emissions Monitoring System (EMS) to a major offshore drilling contractor for three drilling ships/rigs located in the Gulf of Mexico. The EMS will be incorporated into the vessel’s proprietary data management technology, to provide compliance with each vessel’s EPA Air Permit requirements. WRSystems has been working with the drilling contractor for over a year in preparation for these projects. The recent change to the EPA Air Permit requirements in the Gulf of Mexico has required all drilling contractors to re-evaluate their compliance strategies. The proprietary data acquisition technology used on these projects are unique and have been developed in partnership with engine manufacturers, turbocharger suppliers and WRSystems.
