BMT and subsea technology company Sonardyne International Ltd. have signed an agreement to provide advanced integrated marine integrity monitoring solutions to the oil and gas industry.
The official Teaming Agreement between BMT and Sonardyne, announced yesterday at the Rio Oil & Gas exhibition and conference in Brazil, will allow the two companies to collaboratively provide smarter, more efficient through-life solutions for monitoring and managing critical subsea assets, including drilling and production risers, moorings and wellheads.
By jointly offering BMT’s monitoring and analysis capabilities with Sonardyne’s expertise in autonomous, long-endurance data collection and through-water telemetry, clients globally will benefit from a wider range of options to bring more subsea integrity data to their desktops faster, making it easier for them to make safety critical decisions at the right time.
BMT and Sonardyne already have a strong working relationship and see this agreement as an opportunity to offer a further step-change in the solutions provided to customers.
BMT will bring 30 years of marine instrumentation design experience and extensive integration expertise to the working arrangement, while Sonardyne will provide access to subsea data logging and communication technology including its SMART low-power subsea sensors.
Stephen Auld, Global Business Manager, Subsea Asset Monitoring, Sonardyne, says, “BMT are market leaders in marine instrumentation and riser monitoring technology and, having worked with them for a number of years now, we see this agreement as a way to transform what we can offer to the industry by working more closely together.”
Rob Barker, Regional General Manager at BMT, says, “Sonardyne are a world leader in the development of through water positioning and communication technology and these are integral components for our subsea integrity monitoring systems. We are delighted to have formalised a collaborative agreement with them.”
The two companies are already working on proposals for major operators globally, which would offer significant cost reductions on existing systems, with longer periods between maintenance.
