FMC Technologies Scoops OTC Prize
The award, which honors innovative technologies in offshore exploration and production, is in recognition of FMC Technologies’ Annulus Monitoring System.
“We are honored to be recognized by OTC with this prestigious award,” said John Gremp, FMC Technologies’ Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The Spotlight on New Technology Awards highlight the important role that innovation and technology play in our industry. The technology recognized by this award is an example of how advancements are solving the complex challenges our industry faces.”
The Annulus Monitoring System provides independent condition monitoring within the subsea wellhead from the onset of drilling. The communication system delivers actionable information to the operator during critical phases of well installation and commissioning from multiple analog or digital sensors within annular locations.
The system enables monitoring of fluid conditions between casing strings during all phases of drilling, completion, and production operations, by implementing an innovative communication technique capable of transmitting through thick steel barriers without wires or bulkhead connections.
The award will be presented during a ceremony at 4:00 p.m. CDT on Monday, May 4 in the Rotunda area of the Reliant Center Lobby B in Houston, Texas.
