DeepOcean Announces Completion of 'Ground Breaking' 3D Laser Survey

ADUS DeepOcean, a subsidiary of DeepOcean Group Holding BV, announced Wednesday the completion of a “ground breaking” 3D laser survey offshore Ghana.

The deepwater subsea 3D laser survey off the West Coast of Africa for Tullow Oil is the first extensive commercial survey of its kind, heralding a new era of high resolution, cost effective data acquisition, according to DeepOcean.

The survey operations covered 12 drill centre locations and a total of 27 metrologies in water depths between 2,624 feet and 5,905 feet. The laser survey solution, delivered through a moving ROV, comprised a deep-rated 2G Robotics ULS 500 Pro Laser and Sonardyne’s SPRINT INS system.

“The detail achieved by ADUS DeepOcean’s recent dynamic subsea laser surveys has far exceeded expectation,” Hugues Villedey, subsea projects manager in Tullow Ghana Limited said.

“The data and images gathered have proved very valuable in increasing our understanding of the dynamics of the subsea assets, enabling more informed decision making,” he added.
