The high reliability performance of a subsea surveillance system, from subsurface to riser, is of the utmost importance for maximizing production availability. In designing such a surveillance system, there are a multitude of considerations that need to be addressed. These have traditionally focused on safe and cost effective production control system availability. However, they are now being extended to also address enablers for secondary recovery, production optimization, and increased recovery activities. This paper addresses the idea that latest-generation surveillance systems must operate seamlessly from the subsurface to the seabed and in turn from seabed to riser. In doing so they must integrate a number of key enabling technologies over different physical layers and predefined technical interfaces. They must also serve to integrate these technologies over the project management interfaces which arise from the selection of the different proprietary technologies, and the commercial and contractual barriers which can result.
