Bluefield Geoservices Performs Deepest-ever Seabed CPT

Bluefield Geoservices (Bluefield), an international subsea geotechnical services provider, today released details of what the company believes to be the deepest-ever successful offshore Cone Penetration Test (CPT), carried out in ultra-deep-water depths of more than 4,000 meters in the Pacific Ocean. Bluefield operators successfully completed 23 seafloor CPTs to a push depth of 2 meters as part of an ongoing geotechnical site investigation campaign to assess the ocean floor conditions that characterize this vast abyssal plain.

CPT Unit Strengthens Bluefield Geoservices’ Offshore Wind Geotechnical Toolkit

The seabed environment poses well-documented challenges for offshore developers. The build-out of safe and sustainable offshore infrastructure hinges on the robust geotechnical analysis of seabed soil and bedrock conditions. After all, offshore assets, be them oil platforms or wind turbines, typically tower hundreds of meters above their foundations and are constantly subjected to considerable (and variable) environmental lateral loads and geohazards.

Bluefield Geoservices U.S. Takes Delivery of ROSON 100 CPT

Bluefield Geoservices U.S., an international subsea geotechnical services provider, recently took delivery of a ROSON 100 CPT unit to support growth plans in the Americas. The CPT, the latest addition to the firm’s expanding portfolio of geotechnical equipment, will be managed by the company’s Newport office, in Rhode Island, and will serve the immediate demands of the offshore renewable energy market in the region.

Blue Field Thinking

Blue Field Thinking

The seabed environment has always posed unique challenges for offshore developers, whether in pursuit of O&G reserves, renewable energy, or marine minerals. The build-out of safe and sustainable offshore infrastructure is fundamentally reliant on robust geotechnical analysis of seabed soil and bedrock conditions. While initially born out of onshore geotechnical practices, today, offshore geotechnics is a standalone discipline governed by independent codes and technical standards. After all, offshore assets—which typically tower hundreds of meters above their foundations—are subject to greater environmental lateral loads (moment loading relative to structure weight caused by wind, waves, and currents) and a wider range of location-specific geohazards than their land-based counterparts.
