As the largest supplier of marine Geo-technical site investigation services in East Africa, SECO conducts tailored investigations in all offshore regions along the East African Coast. From shallow continental environments to the newer remote ultra-deepwater plays, we deploy our dedicated drillships and robotic drilling equipment to provide you with seabed soil investigations in water depths down to 3,000 metres.
SECO delivers a thorough analysis of your site using the most up-to-date technology. Taking samples through borehole drilling and sampling, geophysical logging and pressure meter testing, our Geo-technical testing accurately quantifies ground conditions at your project site. Soil samples are analysed at our soil and rock testing laboratories to determine design parameters.
Our field data acquisition and sampling services are underpinned by our Geo-technical expertise in executing complex and technically demanding projects. Other key services include:
- Desktop studies
- Advanced laboratory soils and rock testing
- Numerical and physical modelling of foundations
- Engineering analysis
Combining these services with SECO’s geology, geophysics and other related Geo-science expertise enables us to provide you with a comprehensive package of solutions: conceptual design, feasibility, development, installation, operation and field abandonment.
Our offshore Geo-technical services can be accessed via a network of regional offices throughout East Africa, offering you global capabilities with local delivery.
Providing detailed site investigations tailored to your specific requirements, we undertake a range of geotechnical techniques: deep boreholes with high quality down-hole sampling and in-situ testing; advanced laboratory testing; shallow penetration seabed coring; cone penetration testing (CPT); and other specialist in-situ tests.
From shallow coastal waters to ultra-deepwater ocean depths our safe, cost-effective and technologically advanced Geo-technical services include:
- Siting and stability of jack-up drilling rigs
- Foundation design for production platforms
- Mooring of floating facilities
- Optimization of well design
- Assessment of hazards
- Routing and installation of pipelines, flow-lines and cables
