Oceaneering International has secured a contract to perform the first-ever deepwater autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) survey in Mexican waters.
The geophysical survey will be performed for BHP at its Triton development. Oceaneering will use the offshore vessel Ocean Investigator, equipped with their OS-VI AUV and light geotechnical capabilities.
The project has already started and will continue for approximately 45 days. Oceaneering will also provide light geotechnical services by acquiring 6m piston core soil samples.
