Ocean environmental conditions, such as waves, winds, and currents, are getting harsher due to climate change. This means that oil and gas production platforms in the ocean may experience unexpectedly large environmental loads bigger than previous design loads. Also, many platforms are reaching the end of their design lives. Ensuring riser integrity is one of the most important issues for platform safety and service-life extension. Currently, monitoring sensors are deployed on risers, and structural evaluation methods are utilized to examine riser integrity. However, there are some limitations to the structural evaluation methods. Furthermore, platform operators continue to seek for more direct and cost-effective riser monitoring method due to the low price of oil. In this study, the MultiSensor Fusion (MSF) system is proposed to surmount technical and economic obstacles in real-time riser-monitoring technology. The MSF system is validated for TLP (tension-leg platform) risers by using numerical sensors and numerical-simulation tools.
