Offshore Drilling Applications

Ashford has three applications for the Offshore Drilling Industry.

Drilling Rig and BOP Monitoring - Rig Watcher™ is a web-based application for remotely monitoring both current and historical BOP information - anytime, anywhere: on the rig, in the office, at home, on the road. Offshore operator can use the application to generate valve cycle information for preventive maintenance, to evaluate operational procedures using historical BOP control information and to monitor fleet-wide BOP control information with on-shore personnel.    Go to or view the Abstract of our 2009 OTC Technical Paper OTC 20059

Riser Tensioner Rope Wear Monitoring - Tensioner Watcher is a web-based subsystem of the Rig Watcher™ application that estimates the wear on the individual wire ropes used by marine riser tensioners. The system collects tension applied by each tensioner, heave period of the vessel and manually entered well information and exception inputs. Using the client�s damage formula, the subsystem estimates the useful life of each individual wire rope of the riser tensioner system. A web page presents the current accumulated damage of each rope and other related information.

Marine Drilling Risers - RiserTracker is a web-based application for proactively managing marine drillling risers deployed around the world. The application gives offshore operators the data and tools to efficiently manage their riser assets. Riser data can be accessed from anywhere in the world 24/7/365.
