Synectics – a global surveillance business – has announced that it has secured contracts for a number of offshore oil and gas projects, including three LNG floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs).

In addition to the FSRU contracts, the company has also won contracts for a major US deepwater floating platform in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as for two very large crude carriers (VLCCs).

For the Gulf of Mexico platform, Synectics’ scope of work includes the supply of 37 Full HD Class 1, Division 1 COEXTM C3000 camera stations, with integrated base to monitor hazardous and safe area zones. These camera stations ensure continuous and reliable image capture in all lighting, weather and operational conditions. They are also explosion proof and certified to international standards, including CSAus, ATEX and IECEx.

For both the FSRUs and the VLCCs, Synectics will provide a combination of COEX C2000 and C3000 camera stations – in each case as part of an end-to-end surveillance solution driven by the company’s command and control software, Synergy 3.

As well as providing standalone camera control, video playback and secure incident and evidence management, Synergy 3 allows fixed and floating vessels to integrated surveillance data with third-party systems, such as radar and AIS, to improve situation awareness and threat detection.

Synectics claims that it will carry out factory acceptance testing (FAT) for each project at its global operations centre in the UK. Commissioning for the five vessels will be provided by the regional office located in Singapore.

Synectics’ Divisional Director for Oil and Gas, Darren Alder, said: “To say it has been a challenging few years for the oil and gas industry is an understatement, yet during this time we have continued to secure key contracts by offering tailored end-to-end solutions and specialist technology that meets precise needs.

“The uniquely demanding requirements of offshore security and surveillance have always played to our strengths in this respect, a fact reflected by these recent contracts with industry-leading names. With factors including a decreasing deepwater cost curve and increased investment in LNG supply chain infrastructure now driving offshore market optimism, these latest awards demonstrate our ability to add value for our customers in terms of improved security, safety, and situational awareness.”
