Hydrocarbon sensing

Benthic Hydrocarbon Sensing Systems

Acteon’s Hydrocarbon Sensing System (HSS) analyses drill returns for the presence of hydrocarbons as they pass through PROD before being vented on the seafloor.

Hydrocarbon Sensing System (HSS) providing early warning of gas hazards.

The system provides an early warning of potential shallow gas hazards and identifies the presence of methane hydrate concentrations. Gas origin, approximate concentration and approximate depth of intercept are logged versus borehole depth in real time and displayed on monitors in the control unit on board the survey vessel.

Data is stored in digital format and can be combined with core logs and other in-situ test data.
