Ocean Infinity to Perform AUV Surveys in Brazil

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/15/2019, Location: South America

Ocean Infinity, the next generation seabed survey and ocean exploration company, is pleased to announce that its partner, Cepemais, the Brazilian offshore consulting company, has been awarded a contract to provide high-resolution hydrographic mapping services to Petrobras, the Brazilian national oil company.

The project is for the Campos, Espirito Santo and Santos basins, offshore Brazil, and will see Ocean Infinity working under contract to Cepemais to map an area of 5,000km2 and inspect 12,000km of pipelines. Operating from Ocean Infinity’s ‘Island Pride’ vessel, the Company’s Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) will be working in water depths of between 50 and 3,000 metres. The data collected by Ocean Infinity will then be interpreted and reported upon by Cepemais. Work commences in mid-2019 and the contract duration is for three years.

Ocean Infinity’s AUVs are the most technologically advanced in the world. They are capable of operating in water depths from 5 meters to 6,000 meters. The AUVs are not tethered to the vessel during operations, allowing them to go deeper and collect higher quality data for the search. They are equipped with a side scan sonar, a multi-beam echo-sounder, a sub-bottom profiler, an HD camera, a conductivity / temperature / depth sensor, a self-compensating magnetometer, a synthetic aperture sonar and a turbidity sensor.

Oliver Plunkett, Ocean Infinity’s CEO, said:

“We are delighted to be supporting Cepemais on this important Petrobras project. Working on a project of this scale is a clear endorsement of our technology and highlights how the oil & gas industry recognises that through the deployment of multiple AUVs, we can deliver the highest quality data, safely, quickly and more cost effectively than ever before. This project follows our recent work for Woodside on the Scarborough Field and we look forward to providing further updates on our progress in the sector in the months ahead.”
