ExxonMobil hires Oceaneering for surveys off Guyana

Oceaneering has secured a contract with ExxonMobil subsidiary Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL) to provide two surveys offshore Guyana. 

Under the contract, Oceaneering will deliver a towed and autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) geophysical survey and a shallow geotechnical survey.

DP-2 Cape Davis, equipped with a 3,000 meter-rated OS-VI AUV, towed geophysical sensors and geotechnical sampling and testing equipment, will be used for the work.

In addition to the geophysical and geotechnical survey, Oceaneering will be working with RPS Group to provide Protected Species Observers (PSO) and perform an Environmental Baseline Survey (EBS) of the area. 

The surveys are scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2021.

“We are excited to continue to provide support for operations offshore Guyana and to have the opportunity to expand that into geophysical and geotechnical survey services,” said Eric Smith, director of Oceaneering Survey Services.
