Project goal is to develop vibration monitoring systems to improve the safety and cost-effectiveness of subsea petroleum monitoring and production. Monitoring oil and gas flow in pipeline (and risers and sub-bottom casings) is critical to assess conduit integrity as well as optimize overall production performance. This project focuses on reservoir characterization, underwater communication and infrastructure integrity assurance.
