Geosciences company Benthic has completed field work for Esso Exploration and Production Guyana 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 3100 meters.
Environmental equipment collected environmental baseline data, including sediment and water sampling, CTD profiling, and drop camera photography.
Steve Pywell, CEO at Benthic, said: “We believe our commitment towards quality and safety combined with our unrivaled 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.”
