TDI-Brooks Completes Seismic Program Off Trinidad

Thursday, December 7, 2023

TDI-Brooks, a company specializing in geotechnical and offshore survey projects, said Thursday it has completed multiple shallow hazard surveys off the East Coast of Trinidad for independent hydrocarbon producer Perenco T&T Limited. 

TDI-Brooks’ research vessel Proteus operated geophysical survey equipment such as 2DHR seismic, side scan sonar, magnetometer, sub bottom profiler and multi-beam echosounder for the program.

The primary objective for these projects is to identify potential hazards and factors of operational significance relative to the placement of drilling rigs. This involves exploring and defining shallow gas accumulations up to depths of approximately 2,000 feet below mud line (BML) or 2.0 seconds two-way time (TWT) through the acquisition and interpretation of high-resolution 2D seismic data. The focus also extends to the identification of seafloor obstructions, investigation of the proposed area's seabed for potential man-made and geological hazards, and the determination of water depth and seafloor conditions.
