Rigtech Independent Ltd. developed an Asset Integrity Monitoring system in order to address a number of technical and managerial deficiencies found during the audit of a clients offshore platform drilling installations.
The audit identified critical issues which needed addressing, including:
As a result of all these deficiencies, a need to improve performance and a drive towards cost saving, Rigtech set up an Asset Integrity Monitoring system.
The requirements of the system were to be:
To meet all these requirements, Rigtech set up an internet based system combining 3D image scanning coupled with a comprehensive database.
Read only access to the system is available to all involved parties through a personal unique log-in, whilst the content is secured by full read/write access to the system manager at Rigtech.
A brief outline of the system is as follows:
After entering their unique log in a user is faced with a home page that gives high level information and enables navigation to the rest of the site.
Alternatively a virtual tour of the platform can be piloted utilising 3 dimensional , 360 degree imagery.
The platform overview page offers several search and filter options for viewing all relevant information, documentation and imagery contained in each deficiency listed.
All data can be exported to Excel format spreadsheets if preferred
Documentation, certification, reports, photos etc. can all be accessed from the deficiency listing page
Data can be used to generate specific charts and graphs
The above graph reflects the huge reduction in the amount of platform deficiencies during a 2013 reactivation campaign, followed by a controlled level of the number of deficiencies. The pie charts reflect a much improved balance of the criticality of deficiencies.
The chart here shows the distribution of deficiencies by system
As a result of the Asset Integrity monitoring system being in place a number of significant achievements were made, as below:
