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 Sablein Q3 2018. Benthic's Portable Remotely Operated Drill (PROD 3) and geotechnical equipment collectedborehole samples, box and piston cores, grab samples, and conducted in-situ PCPT testing at subseainfrastructure 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 weatheroperability 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.”
