Ocean Infinity, a seabed survey and ocean exploration company, has informed that its partner, Cepemais, the Brazilian offshore consulting company, has been awarded a contract to provide high-resolution hydrographic mapping services to Petrobras.

Ocean Infinity said on Tuesday, January 15 that the project was for the Campos, Espirito Santo and Santos basins, offshore Brazil, and would see Ocean Infinity working under contract to Cepemais to map an area of 5,000km2 and inspect 12,000km of pipelines.

Operating from Ocean Infinity’s Island Pride vessel, the company’s Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) will be working in water depths of between 50 and 3,000 meters. The data collected by Ocean Infinity will then be interpreted and reported upon by Cepemais. Work starts in mid-2019 and the contract duration is for three years.

Ocean Infinity’s AUVs are capable of operating in water depths from 5 meters to 6,000 meters. The AUVs are not tethered to the vessel during operations, allowing them to go deeper and collect higher quality data for the search. They are equipped with a side scan sonar, a multi-beam echo-sounder, a sub-bottom profiler, an HD camera, a conductivity / temperature / depth sensor, a self-compensating magnetometer, a synthetic aperture sonar and a turbidity sensor.

Oliver Plunkett, Ocean Infinity’s CEO, said: “This project follows our recent work for Woodside on the Scarborough Field and we look forward to providing further updates on our progress in the sector in the months ahead.”
