C&C Completes Deepwater Survey for Petrobras

C & C Technologies' AUV recently completed 1,300 linear kilometers of mapping for Petrobras in water depths of up to 2,950 meters. High-resolution data collected by the AUV's swath multibeam bathymetry, chirp side-scan sonar, and sub-bottom profiler systems, provided Petrobras with great benefit for the development of deep-water Brazilian oil fields. Additional AUV mapping included the inspection of an active deep-water pipeline.

In January 2003 the AUV, aboard the R/V Rig Supporter, will transit to the Gulf of Mexico. To date, C & C's Hugin-3000 AUV has performed more than 19,000 linear kilometers of deep-water mapping.
