Benthic, a global geosciences company, has been awarded a geotechnical contract by a wholly owned subsidiary of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation. The work scope includes geotechnical survey operations off the coast of Mozambique in Tungué Bay (Palma district) and surrounding areas to obtain data for maritime navigation, sub-surface characterization, hazard identification, and development of seabed mechanical properties. This shall include campaigns for the acquisition, processing, interpretation/testing, quality verification and reporting of geotechnical survey data in offshore Mozambique.

Benthic is in the process of developing a portable shallow water Tracked System modification to the company’s Portable Remotely Operated Drill (PROD) which will enable the system to execute operations from the shore to 1400m water depth from the same vessel. Tracked PROD, which has a patent pending, will be launched from a unique flat bottomed shallow water vessel, using Benthic’s conventional LARS (Launch and Recovery System). It will then be driven away from the vessel to the maximum distance of the umbilical. Tracked PROD has sufficient onboard cooling allowing it to operate continuously in air at 100% capability. This allows PROD to operate in positive LAT locations, where PROD may be completely dry when the tide is out. Operations are set to commence offshore in Q1 2018.
