Newcastle, England-based UTEC Geomarine announced Wednesday that it had successfully completed a "significant" geotechnical survey in the West of Shetland zone on the edge of the North Sea.
The work, carried out for BP on its Quad 204 development, involved the use of UTEC Geomarine's remotely operated vehicle-deployed geoROV system to carry out cone penetration tests (CPTs) and sampling. The project was conducted in conjunction with Subsea 7, which provided vessel and ROV support services.
UTEC Geomarine said that high-quality seabed geotechnical data was gathered from several locations that would usually be inaccessible to other geotechnical devices. The systems used were able to perform CPTs and sampling tests at precisely-defined locations for the purposes of flowline and subsea structure design, the firm added.
UTEC Geomarine Technology Director Jim Edmunds commented in a company statement:
"Using a combination of the innovative technology we have available in our extensive portfolio, we were able to successfully complete this project in spite of challenging and variable conditions."
