Integrity monitoring and management are essential for determining whether your resources are operating as designed, reducing potential downtime and minimising risk.

Our customised monitoring systems are utilised worldwide on FPSOs, Semi-Submersibles, Spars, TLPs, SPM buoys and fixed platforms. They provide a complete understanding of an asset’s long-term integrity and operational decision-making by taking a more holistic approach to monitoring the environment and the structural response.

For those areas of the world experiencing seasonal weather extremes, our maintenance team can individually inspect and maintain integrity-monitoring systems in preparation, ensuring readiness.  If necessary, repairs are made, damaged units are replaced, and outdated equipment is upgraded.

Operators have found that such preparations for hurricane, typhoon or cyclone season pay off when the environment and vessel response data acquired during hurricane evacuation feeds into and informs of the fixed or floating resource and mooring inspections required before restarting production.

Our integrity solutions

Integrated marine monitoring systems (IMMS)

We help you reduce risk and potential downtime by monitoring your assets constantly and effectively.

Platform performance and environmental conditions, such as wind speed, current profiles, air gap, and wave height, can be simultaneously monitored in real-time using our IMMS. Our systems are found on many floating offshore oil facilities and subsea risers, including tension leg platforms, spars, and subsea risers (steel catenary and free-standing).

We implement and maintain management systems compliant with internationally recognised standards covering quality, health and safety and environmental management. We are certified in ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 18001.

Helideck monitoring systems (HMS)

We are leaders in the aerodynamics and flight safety of offshore helicopter operations in the oil and gas industry. We help you to ensure that your helideck monitoring system provides onshore and offshore users with compliant data, customize displays and include additional features such as Motion Severity Index to suit your requirements.

Hull response monitoring system (HRMS)

Hull Response Monitoring System

We have a long history of supplying hull structural and motion monitoring systems and bring a unique combination of experience in providing permanent marine monitoring and advisory systems for offshore facilities.

Tendon tension monitoring systems (TTMS)

Tendon Tension Monitoring Systems monitor tendon health and platform weight distribution in both Installation and Operation Mode. We provide two types of TTMS: porch-based systems and in-line systems.

Top-tensioned riser monitoring systems (TTRMS)

Maintenance of the correct top tension ratio in vertical risers is essential for safe operations. We provide a system for directly monitoring tension in top-tensioned risers that is without parallel in the industry.

Hybrid riser tower monitoring system (HRTMS)

Bundled hybrid risers are multiple risers supported by a central core pipe offset from the FPSO. We offer a comprehensive system for monitoring the integrity of bundled hybrid risers.

Riser integrity monitoring systems

The need for riser integrity monitoring has accelerated as operators strive to understand better structural issues and potential risks associated with riser systems in increasing water depths and hostile environments.  

We provide monitoring systems for many types of risers and flowlines, including Buoyancy Supported Risers (BSRs), Steel Catenary Risers (SCRs), Steel Lazy Wave Riser (SLWR), Single Line Offset Risers (SLORs), Free-Standing Hybrid Risers (FSHRs), Multi-Bore Hybrid Risers (MHRs) and Oil-Offloading Lines (OOLs).

Anchor leg/load monitoring systems (ALLMS)

Our Anchor Leg/Load Mooring systems provide valuable information for safe operations, forensic engineering, and the validation of design codes for floating moored structures.

We can collect mooring line tension simultaneously with metocean parameters on a standard time base via an IMMS.

Single point mooring telemetry and control systems (SPM-TCS)

We deliver real-time operational and environmental data and critical control functions to lower risk and increase safety and active awareness during tanker hook-up and disconnect decisions for marine terminal and FPSO loading operations.

Pipeline monitoring and materials inspection

Our pipeline and materials engineering services team offer specialised engineering and expertise, research, consulting, and software to help you maximise pipeline efficiency while minimising risk.

Our expertise in the areas of structures, materials, inspections, welding, and testing helps you understand and anticipate the root cause of pipeline fatigue and fracture and develop strategies to mitigate the potential for repeat failures.

Key services:

  • Advanced monitoring and measurement.
  • Development and application of advanced finite element modelling tools for oil and gas pipeline owners and operators
  • Wide range of laboratories and test facilities to support engineering services and research efforts 

Marine growth assessments

Offshore installations and pipelines can become colonised by marine organisms, impacting efficiency and safety.

Our understanding of the extent and form of colonisation helps you assess, prevent, and rectify problems resulting from fouling.

  • Analysis of ROV and diver survey videos and images
  • Assessment of composition and percentage cover of the main types of fouling
  • Provision of depth/ thickness profiles of marine growth on offshore installations
  • Guidance on the legal requirements relating to protected and invasive species
  • Assessment and determination of the total added weight of marine growth on structures scheduled for decommissioning


The Independent Remote Monitoring System (IRMS) allows operators to maintain remote communications with floating assets and receive critical environmental and performance data in real-time during an evacuation, independent of the assets power supply and communication system.

The system provides operators with critical environmental and dynamic performance data in real-time and video and still image capture of actual conditions offshore for effective decision making. Initially designed for monitoring abandoned platforms during severe weather conditions in the Gulf of Mexico to provide an early assessment of post-evacuation platform conditions for expedited re-boarding, the IRMS can be utilised to monitor any vessel, whether cold stacked or operational.

Jackup advisory

Our jack-up advisory system provides the operator with accurate information on sea conditions and motions when moving on and off, leading to less time waiting on weather, reduced exposure to the risk of incidents, and fewer commercial disputes between operators and contractors.

The system can provide real-time data on motion and sea state and advise whether a potential move on or off location is within operational limits.  As a result, the jack-up platforms' owners and operators (onshore and offshore) make safer and efficient decisions during borderline weather conditions.
