For a remote metrology, it is important to understand the necessary timeline associated with each step of Zupt’s remote metrology operations. While it is quite similar to a conventional manned metrology timeline, clients are now able to choose exactly when they want to perform the metrology with no consideration of personnel logistics. No visas, last minute flight delays, hurrying personnel off day rate, etc. The equipment is ready and waiting on the vessel or rig well ahead of the scheduled metrology with plenty of time to demobilize the equipment after the metrology has been completed.

We recently performed two jumper fabrication metrologies for an operator in Congo, off the coast of West Africa using our subsea precise inertial navigation system (C-PINS). We worked with a great ROV crew to transport C-PINS between manifolds and permanent guide bases (PGB) at a depth of 1600m. The data collected allowed our surveyors to precisely measure the distance between these seabed structures as well as the heading, pitch and roll of the structures. We also collected precise differences in depth between the installations. The operator will utilize this information to construct two jumpers in an onshore fabrication yard. Once fabricated the jumpers will be transported offshore and lowered in place connecting the manifold to the PGB’s.
The data from the two metrologies was collected within the client’s specified tolerances and we had the deliverable submitted to the client within 12 hours. We were able to save the operator a significant amount of vessel time and money by using C-PINS to complete these metrologies. This technique is much faster than the industry standard time, ultimately increasing productivity and efficiency for the client. With over 200 metrology surveys completed to date, Zupt and C-PINS continue to provide the deliverables for jumper fabrication within the tightest deadlines and to the highest quality.

We’ve recently discovered that we have a microbrewery right around the corner from our office. On Thursday nights they have sampling, so being the good neighbor we are – we decided to host ZUPT HAPPY HOURS!
The weather is cold but a beer is always good! Join us this Thursday, February 22th, 2018 at 11 Below for a good atmosphere, great drinks and even better conversation.
If you’re in the Houston area and would like to join us for a beer, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org – we will then send you a Zupt coupon that gets you free beer tokens for the evening. We are not sure what they will have on tap – but it is an excuse for a beer and a chat. Local food trucks rotate through if you get hungry!

No matter where and when you enjoy a beer – please drink responsibly. We will arrange a ride for you if you decide you should not drive.
The Zupt Team
In a joint effort, Zupt and Harkand carried out the first deep water diver based inertial metrology in Mexico’s waters at a record-setting 380 fsw in the Bay of Campeche. The completed survey project was in support of the installation of an expansion spool piece for a new pipeline and platform campaign.
The efficiency of Zupt’s inertial solution, combined with the skill and expertise of Harkand’s personnel, allowed the client to have results within 12 hours and fabricate the expansion spool piece in two days.
