Monitoring the condition of Gulf of Mexico umbilicals

 Omnisens is monitoring the temperature and strain on umbilicals used to retrieve oil and gas from 2100 m/7,000ft water depth in the Gulf of Mexico.
Two 21 km/13 mile power umbilicals, specially developed to handle the power requirement of seafloor booster pumps, were instrumented with Omnisens fiber optic-based  monitoring system to detect early indications of temperature and/or strain events which may indicate a leak, overheating, elongation or other threat to the assets' integrity.
