Neptune Geomatics has been awarded a survey contract for the proposed Browse to North West Shelf development by Woodside as operator for and on behalf of the Browse Joint Venture.
The survey will see the acquisition of data along 900 kilometers of seabed, off the Western Australian coast.
The survey is divided into 4 discrete work packages, delivered over two phases.
The project should start in October 2018 with the acquisition of multibeam echo sounder reconnaissance data.
The second phase will incorporate autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) data acquisition to collect high resolution data along the survey route. The AUV survey will be followed by the acquisition of geotechnical (using cone penetration testing) and environmental data.
Neptune CEO, Robin King, said: “This contract extends our extensive track record in providing survey services and continues our relationship with Woodside Energy following our Lambert Deep and Greater Enfield geophysical campaigns.”
