Offshore Geotechnical Services
DeepOcean owns and operates a geotechnical drilling rig and entered into a Strategic Alliance with Geoquip Marine AG in 2014 for the provision of geotechnical services in the Greater North Sea and collaboration world-wide.
The Geotechnical Drilling Rig can be deployed from many of DeepOcean’s fleet of owned and chartered vessels. DeepOcean offers clients high quality seabed drilling and testing services particularly in deep water and in challenging environments such as the Arctic, for both the oil & gas and renewables sectors.
The new rig is a heave compensated, offshore geotechnical deep water drilling rig built and commissioned in 2011. The rig is capable of operating in water depths over 600 metres and drilling with a combined water and borehole depth of 850 metres.
