Increased Production Availability
Despite well-laid hydrate mitigation strategies, operators can still be caught out with unexpected hydrate blockages. These typically result from changes in water cut or salt content. Hydrates once formed can take days or weeks to dissipate resulting in $ millions of deferred production income.

How We Solve It
Blue Gentoo has technology which detects the early signs of hydrate formation and alerts operators in sufficient time to prevent these from leading to blockages. It is essentially a constant guardian, checking for any increase in risk from hydrates in the production flow. It is also able to identify the location of these hydrates at well-head, pipeline or riser.
Is patented technology which detects changes in hydrocarbon composition at surface to indicate the early formation of hydrates. It is able to determine the location of these hydrates subsea by comparing the slip velocity between produced gas and water. It works irrespective of where subsea sensors are located.
The benefits to the operator are lower risk of hydrate formation, greater assurance of production flow and reduced operating cost over the life of the field.
