Oceaneering Lines Up Deepwater GoM Survey

Oceaneering International said it has secured a contract to perform the first-ever deepwater autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) survey in Mexican waters.

The geophysical survey will be performed for BHP at its Trion development. Oceaneering will use the DP-2 Ocean Investigator, equipped with their OS-VI AUV and light geotechnical capabilities. Water depth is in the range of 1,000-3,000 meters.

Work is currently underway and will continue for approximately 45 days. Oceaneering will also provide light geotechnical services by acquiring 6 m piston core soil samples.
