The geophysical survey will be performed for BHP at its Trion development. Oceaneering will use the DP-2 Ocean Investigator, equipped with their OS-VI AUV and light geotechnical capabilities.

Work is currently underway and will continue for approximately 45 days. Oceaneering will also provide light geotechnical services by acquiring six meter piston core soil samples.
