|Archaeological and Hazard Reports (Shelf Blocks) |
C & C has developed more than 2,000 archaeological and geohazard reports.
Geohazard Reports identify zones of unstable soil
conditions and must be submitted before drilling can commence on new Gulf of
provide an assessment of seafloor and subsurface features that may have an adverse effect on proposed well operations.
Seafloor (surface) geologic hazards may include faults, gas vents,
surface channels, furrows, sinkholes, hydrate mounds, unstable slopes, and
reefs. Subsurface geologic hazards could
include gas-charged sediments, faults shallow-water flow, and buried channels.
resources process high-resolution seismic data with up to 96 channels with
Promax software for accurate and precise Archaeological and
Hazard Assessments. Geotechnical or
other soil property measurements are correlated with the geophysical data to
determine the horizontal continuity of the soil conditions at the site.
The survey data is additionally reviewed by a full time staff of professional marine
archaeologists who develop an assessment of the
prehistoric and historic archaeology for the region.
All reports comply with the
BOEM/BSEE most recent guidelines regarding platform and drill site
