Shell has selected BMT Scientific Marine Services (BMT) to implement the replacement of marine instrumentation and advisory systems (MIS/MAS) across Shell’s Gulf of Mexico tension-leg platform (TLP) fleet.
The updated systems will use BMT’s WinMon data acquisition software to implement the MIS functions to monitor, log and display data from the existing suite of sensors. The system performs data quality monitoring and processing and provides storage of measured time series and derived operational information. The validated information is then passed to the Marine Advisory System and key stability metrics are collected and archived by the Marine Instrumentation System.
BMT brings valuable experience to this upgrade project, having previously worked on similar Shell MIS/MAS systems including Perdido, Gumusut, and Olympus.
