Petrobras is going to collaborate with Miros, to update its existing oil spill detection efforts through a smart, digital process.
n particular, as part of the development project, the Miros system will be matured and installed with a cloud-based add-on to the monitoring software currently in use offshore Brazil, thereby allowing data to be safely shared with multiple stakeholders in real-time. The security of Miros’ reliable Oil Spill Detection (OSDTM) system will also be enhanced with a view to rolling it out across a range of offshore assets.
The supplementary cloud-based component introduced by the company to the existing OSD system relies on Miros’ IoT solution. This IoT solution has already demonstrated its effectiveness by providing a suite of advanced cloud-based services and applications that are currently in successful operation within the oil and gas, offshore wind, and offshore vessel sectors across various regions.
The update of the OSD system marks a significant step towards digital transformation and technological evolution. This advancement aims to ensure more sustainable and transparent operations while enhancing the efficiency and coordination of emergency response in case of oil spill incident
… commented Alexandre de Carvalho, Head of Business Development, at Belga Marine
Miros and Belga Marine will now start work to modernize the OSD system and simplify access to offshore information so that potential spills can be tackled even faster.
This move follows the introduction of new rules from local regulator, the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (IBAMA), around the integrity of OSD alarms and monitoring. The guidelines are designed to ensure information or alarms from the OSD kit offshore cannot be tampered with.
It is imperative that Petrobras can effectively and accurately monitor potential oil spills so they can meet the environmental obligations set out by IBAMA and the Brazilian government.
