Geoscience Consulting

Comprehensive Range of Consulting Services

Benthic provides a comprehensive range of geophysical and geotechnical consulting services, including site investigation planning, data evaluation, geohazard analysis and geotechnical interpretation.

An understanding of seabed terrain and geophysics is essential for optimal cable/pipeline routing, field layout and foundation design. Utilizing in-house resources and selected specialist partners we offer an experienced multi-disciplinary team to provide an integrated view of the geophysical, geological, geotechnical, and oceanographic factors relevant to your development.

We help you leverage your investment in data collection by integrating existing data with geotechnical and geological analysis, supporting concept planning and front-end engineering design (FEED). By maximizing the value of data through specialized analysis, we can identify geohazards and design constraints to help reduce risk and improve project efficiency.

An Integrated View of Critical Factors Affecting Your Subsea Development

Drawing on our expertise in data acquisition and interpretation, our highly experienced geotechnical consultants provide essential geotechnical parameters and interpretation for the optimal positioning and design of subsea and sub-seabed structures.

Bathymetric & Geophysical Interpretation:

Utilizing our in-house resources and selected specialist partners, Benthic offers the technical and cross-functional expertise to undertake essential seafloor and sub-seafloor studies, reducing risk and helping to produce more reliable project outcomes.

Geohazard Analysis:

Benthic provides a complete range of geohazard detection and analysis services, including:

  • Regional geohazard studies
  • Field development and drilling evaluations
  • Well, anchor and pipeline placement appraisals

We specialize in deepwater geohazard evaluations from 3D seismic data—a proven and cost effective method for analyzing drilling hazards and potential drilling and design constraints by using existing data to identify potential hazards and constraints upfront.

Advanced Onshore Lab Testing

Advanced Onshore Lab Testing

Specialist Testing for Specific Applications

At project fieldwork completion, offshore samples are sent to onshore laboratories for advanced testing. Benthic partners with accredited soil testing laboratories worldwide to conduct further tests on our samples, which are not covered in the offshore lab, including specialized and advanced soil tests.

Benthic’s geotechnical consultants provide high quality, relevant and timely test results and data to our clients for their structural design purposes. Standard reports include Factual Report (includes all onshore laboratory test results), Interpretive Report and Engineering Report.

Testing facility locations:

  • Brazil – Benthic
  • Norway
  • Houston
  • Perth
