Lidar technology enables red zone management solution on offshore rigs

Seadrill has developed a red zone management solution that uses Lidar, a surveying method that measures distance to a target by illuminating the target with pulsed laser light and measuring the reflected pulses with a sensor. These Lidar modules, which have already been implemented on the West Neptune, were discussed in a presentation by Luis Mariano, Director of HSSEQ for Seadrill, at the 2018 IADC Drilling HSE&T Europe Conference in Amsterdam on 26 September. Mr Mariano spoke with DC Managing Editor Linda Hsieh at the conference about challenges to managing red zones on today’s offshore rigs, as well as the key benefits of the modules that are being developed.
