Petrobras Stops Platform Output After Gas Leak

Brazil state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA stopped production on Sunday from its P-40 platform in the offshore Marlim Sul field after a gas leak on the vessel, an oil workers' union said on its website on Monday, citing worker reports.   The P-40, a semi-submersible production platform, was producing about 45,915 barrels (7,300 cubic meters) of oil and 800,000 cubic meters of natural gas a day when it was shut down, the union said.   The P-40 is at the hub of a network of five platforms in Marlim Sul and at the center of oil and gas pipelines that interlink undersea natural gas

calculated to be around 8 kilogram/second.   The volume of condensate from the leak is estimated to 4 cubic meters.   No one was injured as no personnel were present in the area. The investigation concludes that the outcome could have been fatal if anybody had been exposed to the leak. A gas leak of this size represents a major incident potential if ignited.   “The condensate leak on Gudrun was serious with major incident potential,” said Øystein Arvid Håland, senior vice president of safety and sustainability of Development and Production Norway.   &ldquo

AUVs: Getting Defensive

. The defense community is ahead of the commercial market with regard to processing real-time high resolution data in-mission and making the vehicle respond to it. The commercial market is catching up as we manipulate the technology to make it suit alternative applications such as responding to a gas leak from a pipe detected in real-time. On the other hand, commercial operators demand a more comprehensive sensor suite than most military users. However, there are common elements required by both market segments, notably reliability, robustness and support.   (As published in the MAY 2015 edition

Shell: Gas Leak Impacts Supplies to NLNG

Shell Petroleum Development Company Limited (SPDC) has declared force majeure on gas supplies to Nigeria LNG, effective 09:00 hrs (Nigerian time) on Wednesday, May 15 2013. This action is due to production deferment following a reported leak along the Eastern Gas Gathering System (EGGS-1) right-of-way (RoW) near Awoba in Rivers State. In line with safety precautions, we have shut down our Soku and Gbaran Ubie gas export via the EGGS1 pipeline. Some 1.5 billion standard cubic feet of gas per day is currently impacted. For a limited time and subject to capacity limitations, SPDC are able to export about
