SeaLytics

The data and insights from the SeaLytics™ 3.0 BOP Advisor enable you to reduce non-productive time while increasing safety—without increasing maintenance or service costs.

The challenges
You need a critical control system that ensures uncompromising well control availability and protection from potential cyber attacks—and you want to extract value from the data the system generates and use it to reduce your total expense (TOTEX) profile and meet your regulatory requirements.

The HMH solution
The SeaLytics 3.0 BOP Advisor provides access to your control system data while maintaining cyber-security in an easily installed edge device. The system features real‑time visualization, BOP systems status, and the ability to recommend maintenance actions. With optional cloud connectivity, stakeholders onshore can view/retrieve BOP data that has been historically difficult to retrieve securely. SeaLytics enables collaboration between onshore and offshore personnel, potentially driving the quality and speed of decisions and corrective actions.

On-rig data visualization
SeaLytics is designed to fit seamlessly with the Gen2 BOP Control system, replacing the Data Logger. It provides drillers a visually stunning, easy-to-navigate platform to retrieve and trend change-state and alarm data. SeaLytics uses a high-availability dual-redundant server to provide high data integrity and availability.

Real-time monitoring
SeaLytics provides a complete solution to capture data on the rig, transmit and store it in the cloud, and remotely view status through the HMH engageDrilling™ customer portal. With cloud connectivity, all real-time streaming data is available via a WITSML application protocol interface. Automatic cloud synchronization and buffering functions prevent data loss in case of a satellite communications breakdown.

Optimize maintenance
Native to SeaLytics is the ability to track maintenance and usage of BOP system components. The user can set maintenance levels and monitor consumed life to optimize end-of-well activities. With optional cloud connectivity, HMH can provide analytics services to further optimize TOTEX and availability.
