Exploration in the oil & gas industry
Seismic Vessel Positioning:
Geofix provides the seismic vessel operator with a 700-8000 km range navigation service. For 3D surveys advanced products, under continuous development enable the positions of the streamer tail buoys to be continuously monitored.
Personnel, positioning equipment, computers and advanced positioning software are available to position exploration drilling rigs precisely on to new locations. In addition, tracking systems have been developed for the positioning of anchor handling tugs and other ancillary vessels.
Dedicated site survey vessels equipped with high resolution multi-channel geophysical acquisition systems are rapidly mobilised and operated to check for the presence of shallow gas deposits and other hazards at proposed drilling sites. High quality mapping and interpretation services (including 3D) are available.
Development and production
Field Development and Production:
We provide a center of expertise for the provision of a full range of survey services to support all phases of offshore construction projects.
Seabed and substrata studies are vital to the planning, design and construction phases of any offshore development. Vessels, personnel and equipment are provided to locate any potential engineering hazard such as structural faults, gas pockets, reefs and man-made obstructions.
All phases of the complete pipeline programme including route reconnaissance studies, pipeline route surveys, surveys during pipe lay operations and pipeline inspections are undertaken. Detailed studies using terrestrial and satellite positioning, echo sounders, sidescan sonars, sub-bottom profilers and magnetometer equipments, as well as soil sampling are conducted prior to pipelay operations. These surveys chart water depths and locate suitable sea floor characteristics for optimum pipeline route selection.
As-laid and as-trenched surveys are conducted using towed geophysical sensors or ROVís equipped with sensors to measure pipe burial depths, scours and free spans.
Platform and Underwater Installation:
We provide assistance with the installations of platforms, jacket sections and templates of offshore hydrocarbon provinces. We have custom designed software that integrates surface and sub-surface positioning data to generate graphics showing the position, yaw, pitch, roll and depth of the structure being lowered and levelling information when it is on the seabed.
For the civil engineering and dredging industries
We provide near shore hydrographic, geotechnical and environmental surveys to support all aspects of civil engineering work, including port and harbour development, bridge tunnel construction, and dredging projects. Advanced automated PC computer and swathe bathymetry systems are used to acquire and process data. Land surveys are also conducted in association with nearshore surveys. These may extend into control and trigonometrical surveys including satellite fixing techniques and astronomical observations.
Internal Pipework inspection:
Specialized apparatus for internal pipework inspection of pipeworks in oil refineries and storage depots, nuclear power plants, vertical drilling platform pipelines and drilling platforms legs.
