Geoquip Marine is a geotechnical data acquisition company. We provide offshore and nearshore site investigations, geophysical surveys and engineering services to clients worldwide. We are a specialist offshore geotechnics service provider, primarily focusing on heave compensated drilling, sampling and in situ testing. Our in-house designed drill rigs operate in water depths from 10 to 3,500m. Besides downhole sampling and testing, we also provide a number of seabed in situ testing tools including our 200kN (20t) seabed Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) systems capable of acquiring continuous data up to 50m below seabed. As a global provider of offshore geotechnical services we currently operate six drilling vessels servicing the offshore industry. Each of the permanently mobilised geotechnical spreads include downhole piston and push samplers, hammer samplers, downhole core barrels and wireline PCPT tools. All our offshore spreads are equipped with a soils laboratory, catering for any type of geotechnical investigation, be it for an oil and gas platform, wind turbine generator, suction anchor or any other form of offshore foundation. We also operate downhole seismic PCPT, PS-logging and pressure meter equipment. Geoquip Marine is at the forefront of deep water drilling developments for offshore geotechnical purposes. We currently operate a 120t drill rig capable of handling 2,500m of drill pipe and a 150t drill rig capable of handling 3,500m of drill pipe. These spreads, are capable of handling up to six metres of heave compensation and have a full suite of downhole geotechnical sampling and in situ testing tools. We provide specialist services for deep water gas hydrate and mineral exploration surveys. These investigations focus on obtaining natural gas hydrates and mineral samples in deep water marine environments to provide information on these unchartered reserves.
