Current Expertise

Rig Deployment

  • TRDI 75 kHz (used for deepwater) or TRDI 300 kHz (used for shallower water) acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP)
  • 1 x power / signal cable (marine protected)
  • Datalogger
  • Real-time display for assistance with rig operations, live data feed to CLS

Additional Benefits
  • Early and seasonal understanding of currents for field development and construction requirements if discovery
  • Contribute to NCS database of current information
  • Complete understanding of current strength and direction for accurate rig placement when running conductor and riser analyses
  • Current information and accurate mapping can be sent to skimming boats en route to location
  • Improved clean up strategy
  • Dedicated marine current expertise to assist in event of oil spill from both CLS and StormGeo on a 24/7 coverage if needed
Deploying current meters during the drilling phase provides the knowledge to:
  • Provide live data on current information in the event of a spill for deployment of spill containment services
  • Identify areas for environmental investigation of cuttings discharge
  • Improve understanding of weather windows for running risers, disconnecting etc
  • Optimize Waste Management Plan based on accurate dispersion model
