Survey & GeoEngineering help its customers understand and manage seabed and sub-seabed risks on an offshore energy project through its life cycle from initial feasibility through development, design, construction phases to operations and maintenance and ultimately decommissioning.

We apply deep understanding of project objectives to design hydrographic and geophysical surveys and geotechnical site investigations, enabling our geoscientists to extract maximum value and knowledge to inform risk on subsequent project phases.

We manage, support and QC offshore projects and data with our industry leading specialists in the fields of marine geoscience, hydrographic survey, positioning, offshore construction and cable installation, supported by experienced offshore client representatives and supervisors.

In support of offshore operations, we have developed industry leading project management, mapping, vessel tracking, metocean and data streaming web services, under our IRIS brand, allowing our project managers and customers achieve the closest visibility to project progress, status and performance.
