Fugro’s integrity monitoring system for Berkut oil platform

Fugro has delivered a structural monitoring system for Exxon Neftegas Ltd., as operator of the Sakhalin-1 Consortium, to monitor the structural integrity of its Berkut oil platform in the Arkutun Dagi field.

The Berkut oil platform, located off the northeast coast of Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East, is one of the world’s largest floatover platforms and is designed so that the topsides are isolated from the base using friction pendulum bearings (FPB).

Fugro was commissioned to provide an integrated system to monitor both the seismic response of the platform and the performance of the FPB’s. The bespoke solution also had to satisfy the Russian GOST and GOST-Ex certification requirements and withstand the extreme environmental conditions, the company said.

Fugro configured the equipment at its Glasgow offices.

The factory acceptance test (FAT) was witnessed by WorleyParsons, the lead contractor for the project, before the equipment was shipped to the oil platform for installation, Fugro said in its statement.
