Dynamic positioning for oil and gas exploration

Oil and gas exploration in many parts of the world has moved beyond the reach of conventional moored drilling rigs due to depth. Deepwater developments in various parts of the world have only become possible because dynamic positioning systems and precise positioning allow mobile offshore drilling units to be positioned accurately and securely over the well during drilling operations.

On deepwater drilling it is important to keep the riser connecting the vessel to the well as close to vertical as possible, so precise positioning is required. VERIPOS services are used on many mobile offshore drilling units along with our hardware products and software applications. This provides the accurate and reliable position required for the dynamic positioning system and allows the operator to monitor quality of the position ensuring that the vessel stays precisely over the well.
