Upstream and downstream corrosion and erosion monitoring solutions provider, Permasense wins milestone order for Shell’s Pulau Bukom refinery in Singapore.
According to the UK-based firm, this application will see Permasense deliver its 10,000th permanently installed corrosion and erosion sensor in its largest single installation in Asia.
Following an initial order of 25 sensors last year, installed to extract thickness data from inaccessible locations, Shell is now set to expand its monitoring system in August to include an additional 128 sensors spread across three of the Pulau Bukom refinery’s units.
Xuan-Thang Doan, inspection engineer at the Pulau Bukom refinery said this strategy would increase visualization of the refinery’s corrosion activities, plus allow the team to see the impact of crude slate variations almost instantaneously.
This year Permasense launched its real-time monitoring technology, ET210 Integrity Monitoring System, for upstream oil and gas assets. The company said ET210, too, delivers continuous wall thickness and temperature measurements from topside or surface equipment directly to desk, providing economical and safety benefits for production operations.
Permasense, who also exhibited at this year's OGA 2015 and OTC Houston 2015, discussed these technologies and its range of asset integrity monitoring solutions.
