Seismic specialist Ocean Infinity has been awarded, via partner Cepemais, a contract to provide hydrographic mapping services to Petrobras in Brazil.
The project will utilise multipurpose support vessel Island Pride in the Campos, Espirito Santo and Santos basins, and will see Ocean Infinity working under contract to Cepemais mapping an area of 5,000km2 and inspecting 12,000km of pipelines.
Oliver Plunkett, CEO of Ocean Infinity, commented: “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.”
Work will commence mid-2019 and the contract has a duration of three years.
