(WO) – Passive well integrity monitoring specialists, Sentinel Subsea, has announced further international expansion following contract wins worth seven figures. This announcement marks continued industry success for the company’s pioneering passive subsea monitoring technology, WellSentinel.

Sentinel Subsea Co-founder and CEO, Neil Gordon

Reporting a significant increase in deployments since the beginning of the year, Aberdeen-based Sentinel Subsea (Sentinel) continues to establish itself as a trusted partner for major and independent operators worldwide. Following on from successful deployments, in collaboration with Baker Hughes at the end of last year, this collaboration is celebrating further contract wins for novel passive WellSentinel systems globally.

Included in this latest batch of contract wins is the provision for further regulator approved WellSentinel Coral wellhead solutions for projects in Western Australia. The innovative system is designed to passively monitor subsea wellheads without the use of active subsea power or ongoing data communication. The simple-to-deploy monitoring systems enable operators to continuously monitor the integrity of the remote wells easily, increasing environmental safety while reducing risk and cost.

Highlighting the application of passive technology across the entire wells life cycle, Sentinel is also deploying systems for an operator as part of a drilling campaign in the North Sea. The newly drilled wells are left for a period suspended before being fully completed.  During this phase, the wellheads will be fitted with a WellSentinel Coral system to provide continuous monitoring.

Marking continued technological advancement, further development of WellSentinel Clam solutions now enable operators to monitor subsea Christmas trees at any depth in addition to wellheads. As part of Sentinel’s significant contract wins, a major operator will be adopting this latest innovation by deploying the WellSentinel Clam solution to continuously monitor the integrity of producing horizontal Christmas trees in multiple international locations.
