The Water Column Monitoring (WCM) Equipment
The WCM Equipment was developed by CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) and has been integrated into operational plans and desktop exercises conducted in the U.S. and internationally since 2014. CSA is a marine environmental consulting firm with 50 years of experience serving the environmental needs of the offshore oil and gas industry. The WCM Equipment is offered through the OSRL SWIS Capping subscription to complement existing equipment designed for the use of SSDI as a response option when relevant. Even if SSDI is not required as a response option, the WCM Equipment provides useful instrumentation and tools to enable sampling and monitoring in deep-water settings for Operational and Scientific Monitoring Plans (OSMP).
The WCM Equipment is self-contained and mobilization-ready, with an integrated Launch and Recovery System (LARS) consisting of a 30-horsepower winch, A-frame and skid (DNV certified by Lloyd’s post-construction). The system is equipped with an electrotechnical cable to provide power and communication to the sensor and sampling equipment.
Our dedicated subsea services provides enhancement to the industry's ability to prepare for, and respond to, a subsea well control incident wherever it occurs.
