BENTHIC SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED FIELD WORK
FOR ESSO EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION GUYANA LTD. IN
THE STABROECK AND CANJE BLOCKS, OFFSHORE GUYANA.
Houston, November 6, 2018 – Benthic, a global geosciences company, has completed field work for
Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Ltd. for an offshore geotechnical investigation and
environmental baseline survey in the Stabroeck and Canje Blocks, Offshore Guyana.
Benthic executed the combined geotechnical and environmental scope of work from the Chouest Sable
in Q3 2018. Benthic's Portable Remotely Operated Drill (PROD 3) and geotechnical equipment collected
borehole samples, box and piston cores, grab samples, and conducted in-situ PCPT testing at subsea
infrastructure locations in water depths up to 3100m. Environmental equipment collected environmental
baseline data, including sediment and water sampling, CTD profiling, and drop camera photography.
Steve Pywell, CEO at Benthic commented:
“We believe our commitment towards quality and safety combined with our unrivalled track record in
Deepwater Geotechnical Drilling utilizing Benthic's propriety seafloor drill PROD 3 and superior weather
operability were key factors in securing this high-profile project in Guyana. Furthermore, we are
delighted to have teamed up again with Chouest who provided the vessel and survey services.”
