Benthic wins Sea Lion geotechnical investigation gig

Benthic, a global geosciences company, has been awarded a contract by Carnarvon Hibiscus Pty Ltd (CHPL), a subsidiary of Hibiscus Petroleum, for an offshore geotechnical investigation in the Sea Lion Field off the coast of South Eastern Australia in the Bass Strait. 

Operating from a client issued vessel, Benthic’s PROD1 (Portable Remotely Operated Drill) will perform rotary drilling and piston coring, and in‐situ testing using a piezo‐cone penetrometer to identify the seabed ground conditions for a well to be drilled using a jack up at the Sea Lion prospect.

PROD1 will penetrate to depths up to 30 meters below the mudline, in water depths of approximately 24 meters. Core transportation logistics and laboratory testing will be coordinated by Benthic during the offshore operations. According to Benthic, CHPL will be provided with Factual Geotechnical Data Reports following laboratory testing. Benthic will begin operations in the first quarter of 2015.
