Shell

Ocean Infinity and Guardian Geomatics collected hydrographic data for Shell using unmanned surface vehicles, operating from the Seabed Constructor.

Our Case Studies

The Brief

The project, which commenced in June 2019 ran from Ocean Infinity’s vessel ‘Seabed Constructor’ and collected high quality hydrographic data over an area in excess of 800km2, using up to three Ocean Infinity unmanned surface vessels (USVs).

Guardian Geomatics is an Australian marine survey company based in Perth WA, servicing the offshore oil & gas and renewable markets, with a footprint across Australia, PNG, NZ and the broader Asia Pacific region.  Ocean Infinity acquired a 25% stake in Guardian in March 2019.

“We are very excited that we continue to be world leaders in the use of technology in scale for seabed survey and on this occasion in particular whilst working with our trusted partner Guardian Geomatics to deliver a service to Shell.

Our ability to utilise multiple USVs simultaneously to collect data across such a vast area, in such a short space of time, and at the same time so materially reducing the environmental impact of the project compared to other service providers, delivers for our clients a truly unique and high value solution."

Oliver Plunkett, Ocean Infinity’s CEO,

“We take this opportunity to thank Shell for their award, and their belief in this new technology and methodology.  By using unmanned surface vessels instead of a conventional vessel, Shell is able to reduce the onsite data acquisition time by a factor of 3.

Using Guardian’s Seabed-Cloud technology the data is able to be presented to the users with a much quicker turnaround.  The fuel usage on the project is estimated to be reduced by a factor 10.”

Steve Duffield, Guardian Geomatics’ Commercial Director
