Benthic Bags Woodside Geotechnical Contracts Off Australia

Benthic has been awarded two contracts by Woodside to undertake offshore geotechnical site investigations for the proposed Browse floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) Development and the Greater Enfield Development located off the coast of Western Australia.

Benthic’s PROD3 (Portable Remotely Operated Drill) will execute the projects consecutively from the Jaya Vigilant. Benthic will begin operations in the 4th quarter of 2015 at the proposed Browse FLNG Development site.

PROD3 will complete in-situ testing and sampling to identify the soil conditions and geotechnical properties of the soil. PROD will penetrate to depths of up to 35 meters below the mudline in maximum water depths of 620 meters, the company said.

Following project completion, the Jaya Vigilant will transit to the Greater Enfield Development site to perform similar site investigation services. Geotechnical data reports will be provided to Woodside.

“PROD’s previous success working in the Browse Gas Field and its adjacent sectors provides confidence that the site investigations will be executed to Woodside’s full satisfaction,” said Steve Pywell, CEO.

“Benthic is pleased to have a strong working relationship with Woodside and looks forward to executing these two projects.”
