UK based Inductosense to support CNOOC digital transformation project
Inductosense has been awarded a contract from China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) to deploy WAND corrosion monitoring sensors on platforms in the Bohai Bay Basin; as the largest offshore oil and gas producer in China, CNOOC has ambitious plans to produce up to 555 million BOE in 2021. The company is actively promoting digital transformation, with progress in the construction of smart oilfields, unmanned offshore platforms and onshore power utilisation.
Working collaboratively with Beijing Antaixin Technology Co. Ltd (AnTaiXin), Inductosense will support CNOOC’s digital objectives by initially deploying the WAND ultrasonic monitoring sensors on a range of locations on the QinHuangDao (QHD) 32-6 CEPI and 32-6 CEPJ platforms. The permanently installed sensors will enable repeatable, accurate and reliable thickness measurement data without the need to mobilise skilled inspectors.
CEO of Inductosense, Dr Matt Butcher said “I’m always pleased to see major operators recognising the value Inductosense adds in terms of digitisation. While the initial trial is exciting, the subsequent volume deployment is where we can showcase the full benefits of WAND and integrate new remote WAND technologies – this will be a real game changer for CNOOC’s digital transformation”.
