Ocean Infinity in AUV Survey for Petrobras
Ocean Infinity’s partner, Cepemais, the Brazilian offshore consulting company, has been awarded a contract to provide high-resolution hydrographic mapping services for Petrobras.
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 5,000 km2 and inspect 12,000 km 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 meters.
The data collected by Ocean Infinity will then be interpreted and reported upon by Cepemais.
Work begins in mid-2019 and the contract duration is for three years.
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 recognizes 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.”
