Oil & Gas

Our Focus is Servicing the Oil & Gas Industry

& Delivering Innovation to the Core

Benthic’s solutions-driven approach allows us to deliver high quality services specifically tailored to project objectives. This allows us to service clients of all sizes, from oil and gas supermajors to small, independent companies.

Benthic… Best in Class Safety and Quality

Inherently Safer Solution

Benthic offers the oil & gas industry an inherently safer offshore geotechnical solution. Because our innovative Portable Remotely Operated Drill (PROD) operates on the seabed and is controlled remotely from a vessel, it is inherently safer than a traditional drillship. However, it isn’t simply our technology that has made us an industry leader in safety. Benthic’s focus on safety emanates from the very top of our organization and is continually reinforced as one of the core tenets of Benthic’s culture. We take a proactive attitude to risk management, continually reviewing and monitoring our procedures for the protection of human health, personal safety and environmental quality.

Superior Quality Data
Portable Remotely Operated Drill

With the drill unit located on the seabed, Benthic’s PROD provides a highly stable and controlled platform, enabling Benthic’s geotechnical team to make precise tool adjustments and collect extremely accurate data. PROD utilizes industry leading, proprietary drilling bits and sample recovery features to recover the highest quality samples for delivery to an onshore advanced laboratory testing facility. Superior sample quality raises engineer’s confidence to optimize foundation design resulting in significant project savings.

Increased Productivity

Resulting in Cost Savings

PROD’s ability to switch between piston sampling, rotary coring and in situ testing maximizes productivity and provides certainty in achieving your geotechnical data objectives, on time and on budget. As a result, PROD has consistently proven to be the offshore oil and gas market’s most productive system for gathering geotechnical data. In particular, no other system is able to offer the productivity of PROD in deepwater and challenging conditions, including extreme seabed slopes beyond 20 degrees.

Design Optimization

Savings Through Foundation Design and Optimization

Superior sample and data quality results in engineer having raised confidence to optimize foundation design for oil and gas producers. By utilizing industry leading, proprietary drilling bits and sample recovery features – PROD recovers the highest quality samples for delivery to an onshore advanced laboratory testing facility.

High quality data leads to less uncertainty in soil properties which directly translates into cost savings due to more confident design. Confidence in the quality of a geotechnical data set often means the level of conservatism assumed in design can be significantly reduced, for example; reducing mud-mat dimensions, pile length and wall thickness by better defining soil strength and stiffness. Any reduction in foundation dimensions is a cost saving. High quality data leads to cost savings and geotechnical data acquired with PROD are of the highest possible quality.

  • 3.5 to 5 times more productive than a drillship in water depths over 350m
  • 60+ projects completed across the globe
  • 3,500m water depth capability – PROD deepest seabed drilling record = 2,920m
  • 0 LTIs in the last 24 months
  • Advanced weather operability – PROD has operated in 5m high seas
