The contract involves a deepwater geophysical pre-engineering route survey, extending approximately 300 kilometers from the Scarborough subsea field in 950 to 1400 meter water depths up the scarp break towards existing onshore LNG processing facilities on the Burrup Peninsula.
Ocean Infinity will deploy multiple AUVs simultaneously from the 115 meter vessel Seabed Constructor to collect the data required for Woodside’s route engineering design.
Ocean Infinity has invested to ensure it has an unrivaled technological advantage, based not only on the economies of scale of deploying multiple AUVs simultaneously to increase coverage and reduce operating time but also the computing power to deliver results to facilitate virtually real-time information to be presented to the client.
The deepwater geophysical survey project will commence in mid-June 2018.
Oliver Plunkett, Ocean Infinity’s CEO, said:
“This contract represents Ocean Infinity’s ability to support the offshore energy sector. We have worked closely with Woodside in developing a robust solution which meets their demand for high quality data delivered in a time critical, innovative and cost-effective way.“
