Capable of capturing and aggregating all standard drilling data formats, SafetyDAQ's ruggedized architecture and EEXD certified housing were designed to withstand the most extreme of events. Through its data transmission facility, data can be monitored and safely stored as required.
It also supports the recording of audio and video feeds. These audio and video feeds along with the recorded drilling parameters are key elements of analysis to determine the safety conditions of the operation, as well as the main source of information during incident investigations.
SafetyDAQ can be deployed either alongside existing data acquisition systems at the rig, or as a standalone system for acquisition, aggregation, display and transmission of data.
SafetyDAQ offers considerable value to operators and drilling companies as visible proof of their commitment to safe drilling, and best practices.
SafetyDAQ captures signals directly from the rig sensors, taking the key parameters necessary to determine the operational safety levels
All the data is stored along with video and audio feeds in the HVR Hardened Recorder. This is the HVR acting as the storage unit with incident survival capabilities
Drilling parameters, monitoring by exception, and alarms are displayed at the rig site for the use of on-site personnel. The rig personnel can review the status of the drilling operation and get immediate alarms in case any drilling safety parameters approach unsafe conditions
The safety parameters are transmitted to a central base, for access to the information in real-time by the on-shore specialists
Further transmission of the data to a DrillSAFE Real-Time Operation Center. These centers are manned by government and/or operator personnel, supported by Petrolink engineers. In these centers the drilling specialists monitor the status of all operations, and escalate out of the ordinary conditions and incidents
SafetyDAQ uses the L-3 Hardened Recorder (HVR03) manufactured by L-3 Communications as its black box storage device.
The HVR03 Black Box is a state-of-the-art final recording medium stored within a protective capsule. The unit is tamper-proof and designed to survive a major incident such as a fire, explosion, collision, or sinking.
The HVR meets or exceeds the performance standards set out in IMO resolution A.861(20).
Compact and lightweight design, unibody casting
Standard memory capacity exceeds 1,000 days of Drilling Data Recording and 12 hours of voyage data (RADAR, audio and sensor)
Long life, low operating power
Meets or exceeds all required IEC 61996 and 60945 test specifications
Watertight cable glands
