UTEC Geomarine announces BP Quad 204 geotechnical survey success

ABERDEEN -- UTEC Geomarine has announced the completion of a significant geotechnical survey program in the West of Shetland region.

The work was carried out for BP, on their Quad 204 development, and involved the utilization of UTEC Geomarine’s ROV-deployed geoROV CPT and sampling system.  The project was conducted in conjunction with Subsea 7 who provided vessel and ROV support services.

For the first time, geoROV was also used in conjunction with UTEC Geomarine' s recently developed geoREACT suction anchor tooling skid.  As part of the program multiple CPTs, cyclic T-bars and undisturbed sampling tests, together with advanced laboratory testing, were performed at precisely defined locations for the purposes of flowline and subsea structure design.

UTEC Geomarine reports that, during the operation, high quality seabed geotechnical data was gathered from locations that would, in many cases, be inaccessible to otherwise conveyed geotechnical devices.
