The R/V Miss Emma McCall has recently joined the TDI-Brooks’ fleet of offshore research vessels. The Miss Emma is a multi-use oceanographic research vessel outfitted for a wide variety of oceanographic research duties for operations in the Northern/Southern Gulf of Mexico (GOM), US East Coast and elsewhere in the Americas.
The Miss Emma is equipped to acquire geophysical surveys for offshore hazard/site clearance assessments, pipeline/cable routing, seafloor mapping, port and channel conditions, fisheries habitat mapping and burial assessment studies. She is also well suited to perform geotechnical sediment and seabed coring/CPT for wind farm and LNG port facilities, pre/post excavation dredging. The Miss Emma McCall encompasses satellite communications (voice, fax, and email), differential GPS, geophysical survey gear and two (2) A-frames with high-speed winches.
The Miss Emma McCall was recently mobilized to Mexico to complete two (2) EPOS projects in Mexico for TOTAL in Blk. 2 (Perdido) and Capricorn Energy Mexico (CAIRN) in Blk. 9 (Sureste Basin). The Block 2 EPOS program was in deep-water (~3,300 m) offshore northern Mexico, while the CAIRN project was a shallow water project in the Gulf of Campeche. These were the first EPOS programs completed in Mexico in this COVID work environment.
In the past 3 years, TDI-Brooks has acquired nineteen (19) EBS or EPOS programs in Mexico for eight (8) major Oil & Gas firms all safely and efficiently without any incidences. TDI-Brooks remains focused on the planning, acquisition, post-drilling and analytical components of these ASEA required EBS/EPOS projects. We team with Maxon Consulting who provides the regulatory and interpretative reporting components.
Environmental Baseline Studies are often required in offshore prospects as a defense against potential litigation, to satisfy leasing stipulations, and as good faith measures in responsible environmental stewardship. When performed in conjunction with TDI-Brooks’ survey or geotechnical programs, TDI-Brooks is able to leverage our experience, logistical support, and presence to provide cost effective EBSs conducted under the stringent HSE standards that industry demands, thereby providing our client with timely solutions to environmental concerns backed with the highest scientific and technical credibility.
