oil-rig-articleNew Gas Detection Equipment and iNet® Exchange Restore Consistency

Thursday, November 1, 2018

Two neighboring off-shore rigs owned by one of the world’s largest oil companies set the stage for a much needed unified solution: Platform 1, over twenty years in operation, equipped with an aging gas detection fleet that required ongoing heavy maintenance and replacement of parts; and Platform 2, a much newer counterpart, interchangeably operated by some of the same personnel, and yet to be outfitted with gas safety equipment.

On Platform 1, the team of instrumentation technicians responsible for million-dollar equipment, spent valuable man hours on gas monitor repair. The time needed to transport broken instruments to land for repair and back to the rig became unreasonable.
