EGS Survey has started a hydrographic and geophysical survey for Anadarko’s Mozambique Area 1 (AMA1) LNG development. The survey is expected to last up to three months and involves deploying a range of hydrographic and geophysical survey tools in a remote environment.Offshore operations include shallow and deep water high resolution geophysical and hydrographic surveys, utilizing EGS’ vessel RV Ridley Thomas and the recently acquired shallow daughter craft. The surveys will support onshore development of two liquefaction trains to be constructed by Anadarko-led Area 1.EGS VP Chris Dougherty stated that EGS has worked closely with Anadarko in the time leading up to the start of field operations so that the team of 15 offshore geophysicists, surveyors and engineers can be as well prepared and safe as possible for the variety of survey tasks to be performed at the remote site.
