BMT to Provide EFMS Services for Chevron's Big Foot TLP (USA)

Chevron has awarded a contract to BMT Scientific Marine Services Inc (BMT) to provide an Environmental and Facilities Monitoring System (EFMS) for the Chevron operated Big Foot Tension Leg Platform (TLP) at the Big Foot field in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

“The EFMS monitors, logs and displays data in real-time on the local environment and facility motions. It archives the data for assessing the TLP’s integrity over time and interfaces with the facility’s other platform control systems,” explains BMT in a press release.

The Big Foot EFMS will measure factors such as wind speed and direction, platform position, wave frequency and high frequency platform motions, air gap, surface currents and draft.

A TLP is a vertically moored floating structure suited for use in a wide range of water depths.

The Big Foot TLP will be Chevron’s sixth operated facility in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico and will be located approximately 225 miles south of New Orleans. The TLP will include an on-board drilling rig and will have a production capacity of 75,000 barrels of oil and 25 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. Installation of the TLP is scheduled to begin in November 2012 and first oil is expected in 2014.
