Our site surveys explore and analyse the geophysical, geotechnical and environmental aspects needed to provide valuable information for wellhead platform planning processes. We offer these as a package or as stand-alone services.
The geophysical site surveys provide bathymetry, seabed features and sub-bottom conditions, using multibeam echo sounders, side-scan sonar, magnetometer and sub-bottom profilers.
Our geotechnical investigations are carried out using specialist equipment, such as vibrocorers, CPT and grab samplers. Soil sample analysis is then conducted at carefully selected laboratories.
Our environmental surveys map marine habitats using remote sensing methods (multibeam and side scan sonars) and ground truthing equipment (drop-cameras, ROVs and seabed sampling tools). The results, together with habitat classifications and statistical analysis, are then presented in reports, charts and GIS. These reports commonly form an essential part of our clients’ EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) documentation.
When required we also conduct underwater munition detection using multibeam bathymetry, side-scan sonars, magnetic methods (such as magnetometer, gradiometer and TVG) and ROV inspections.
We specialise in swift and optimal operations and many of our clients benefit from our ability to conduct many survey types from the same vessel.
All results are correlated and integrated to ensure the best and most accurate results are presented.
