Houston -- Benthic, a global geosciences company, partnered with Asian Geos Sdn Bhd (Asian Geos), has successfully completed its geotechnical investigation in the Limbayong Field, offshore East Malaysia for PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (PETRONAS Carigali). Asian Geos was awarded a contract by PETRONAS Carigali for the provision of soil investigation services for Limbayong Deepwater Development.

Benthic’s Portable Remotely Operated Drill (PROD)2 executed the geotechnical work scope from the MMA Valour in fourth-quarter 2018. Benthic’s PROD collected geotechnical borehole samples and Cone Penetration Test (CPT) to 328 ft (100 m) penetrations, seismic probes to 131 ft (40 m) and a range of 131 ft (40 m) of CPTs in water depths ranging from 2,297 ft (700 m) to 3,412 ft (1,040 m). Benthic and Asian Geos successfully completed the program without incident or delay on Dec. 14, 2018. Laboratory testing, reporting and interpretation are taking place in Perth.

“We are very pleased with the success of this campaign, as this was Benthic’s first Malaysian project conducted in co-operation with Asian Geos,” stated Steve Pywell, CEO of Benthic. “Our teams worked collaboratively to execute the project safely and on schedule to meet the client’s project goals. We look forward to working together on future Malaysian deepwater projects,” he added.
