Neptune has been awarded a geophysical and light geotechnical survey services contract by Shell Australia Pty Ltd (Shell).
The work will start in November 2015 and includes a site survey of the Crux gas field and a 160km route survey between the Crux and Prelude gas fields, in water depths ranging from 90m to 280m, the company informed.
Neptune will collect high resolution Multi Beam Echo Sounder (MBES), Side Scan Sonar (SSS) and Sub Bottom Profiler (SBP) data on-board the ‘Mermaid Investigator’ Offshore Supply Vessel (OSV).
Neptune Chief Executive Officer, Robin King, said: “This project is the first to be awarded to Neptune by Shell in Australia and we are delighted to be involved. Furthermore, our survey business in Australia has been awarded a number of contracts in recent months and it is pleasing to see a steady flow of work for our Geomatics team.”
