Full Description
Many assurance advancements to deepwater BOP leak detection testing was introduced through an industry sponsored development project.  Through the experiences and end-user suggestions gathered over the past 2 1/2 years, the application has evolved and advanced beyond the original vision, into new areas of assurance and functionality.
 
Rigs now utilize a customized smart schematic of the BOP and manifold within the application.  This provides the subsea engineer with the ability to optimally design each of the required tests by simply clicking to close and open; manifold valves, BOP rams, annulars, etc.  As a proper test is lined up, the test path is highlighted and documented for each test.  The valve coverage feature verifies that all valves are properly planned for testing.
 
During actual testing, the BOP-Manifold schematic will be updated at the end of each test, showing the valve coverage progress real-time.  Final reports are now enhanced, with the schematic representation showing all valve states for each test, with the test path highlighted.  Included in the report is the valve coverage report, showing detailed verification of complete testing.
 
The development has expanded beyond BOP testing, to any pressure testing requirement.  Real-time monitoring capabilities and other enhancements developed and planned will also be presented.
