We support marine exploration with advice on planning and executing geophysical and geochemical surveys and expert data interpretation. Our advice helps customers realise value and reduce risk as early as possible in the exploration programme by optimising prospect evaluation, operational efficiency, and safety.

We can apply our foundation investigations expertise to a wide range of commercial scenarios, including: 

  • The purchase or sale of residential or commercial properties
  • Asset management and refurbishment, including quay walls and bridges
  • Damage investigation and impartial advice in case of disputes and litigation 

marine exploration activities are specifically tailored to help clients realise value and reduce risk associated with their projects as early as possible.

  • By analysing and interpreting hydrocarbon potential in frontier regions, we lower costs and risks and reduce exploration uncertainties. Our seep hunting and geochemical campaigns have an enviable track record with exceptionally high success rates.
  • Our specialised services deliver expertise in all phases, underpinned by a world-class safety culture.
  • Real-time well monitoring during drilling of the tophole exploration well section helps identify, avoid, and mitigate any shallow hazard-related drilling problems.
  • Our experience with hydrate exploration and research means we have specialised hydrate engineering analysis and modelling techniques applicable to deepwater field developments. Geologists, geophysicists, and geotechnical engineers can perform onboard interpretations to optimise hydrate programmes during the expedition.
