Slick Sleuth – Rig Guard System and Service

Rig Guard mounted on platformThe Slick Sleuth® Rig Guard is designed for use on offshore platforms and rigs and offers proven optical technology for real-time monitoring and alert of oil leaks and spills in offshore environments. Each platform-based system consists of one to four oil spill detectors, housed in explosion-proof, submergible enclosures, that are fully integrated with wireless communication for real-time alerts and remote system command/control. The system is non-contact; thus, it requires minimal maintenance and no operational expense. The mounting range can vary from near-surface, up to maximum 8 meters above sea surface.

The Rig Guard system is optimized for detection of crude oil, as well as diesel, lube oil, and slop oil, all of which may be a concern in the offshore environment. The patented non-contact Slick Sleuth scanning optics and detection processor allows users to easily adjust settings for site-specific sensitivity levels, so spills of any size can be identified before significant damage occurs, Detection of spills above the user-selected threshold triggers automated user-defined response such as local audio/visual alert and remote alarm notification to control room SCADA or PLC.

This system is now offered as an all-inclusive oil spill monitoring service for a single, cost-effective, monthly rate.

The Rig Guard oil spill detection system is meant to deliver significant cost savings and environmental safety benefits to offshore operators with its reliable all weather, around the clock, non-contact, low maintenance monitoring capability.
