HOUSTON, Apr. 9 -- BP Trinidad & Tobago LLC (BPTT) let a contract to Woods Hole Group Inc., East Falmouth, Mass., to design, build, and install a meteorological and oceanographic measurement system on BPTT's Cassia oil and gas production complex off eastern Trinidad and Tobago.

Woods Hole will provide systems design, integration, installation, and real-time data display along with monthly data monitoring and archiving during the 24-month project.

Measurement of the predominant and spurious currents and waves and their impact in this environment is important for the continued safe and efficient operation of BPTT's production platforms off Trinidad and Tobago's east coast, Woods Hole said.

The BPTT Cassia Metocean system will consist of two Nortek AWAC acoustic Doppler current profilers—arranged to generate a continuous profile of currents through the 90 m water column and measure wave height and direction at the installed location—and several wind, barometric pressure, and temperature-relative humidity sensors.

The systems will be integrated into the Woods Hole integrated real-time system, which will acquire and store all raw data and display the processed data on the Cassia production complex for operational use in real time through a web-based data server application. It will enable BPTT and BP's affiliate offices in Houston to view the real-time processed data through any BP web-enabled access port.
