Fugro in the Caribbean has received a contract award from PETRONAS Suriname E&P B.V. (PSEPBV), a subsidiary of PETRONAS, for the provision of positioning services for an exploration program in Block 52, off the coast of the capital Paramaribo in the Guyana-Suriname Basin.
Science & Technology
Increased depth range and the ability to explore 99% of the ocean floor, including the abyssal region—one of the least understood areas of the deep sea—are just some of the upgrades underway for the iconic human-occupied Vehicle (HOV) Alvin that were unveiled today at the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) Fall Meeting 2020.
The ocean is vast and full of sounds. Many are naturally occurring while others are anthropogenic (man-made). When these anthropogenic sounds are unwanted, we call them noise. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) manages energy and mineral resource development on the Outer Continental Shelf subject to environmental safeguards, and noise is high on the list of issues we need to understand and address to protect ocean life.
As exploration activities in the Guyana-Suriname Basin expand, CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) and its Trinidad subsidiary follow suit, building on a 30-year history of marine environmental consulting work in the Caribbean and serving the scientific and operational needs of the offshore energy industry.
