The proper identification of seafloor and subsurface geologic hazards (geohazards) is key to understanding potential hazards and constraints to exploration, appraisal, and development activites.
Shallow Hazards Assessments
Our assessments utilize public and proprietary information to develop a geologic model of anticipated conditions. Examples of seafloor hazards include faults, scarps, expulsion features, steep slopes, and slumps. The subsurface hazards include faults, mass transport deposits, overpressured sand bodies (source of shallow water flow), shallow gas pockets, and geopressure variations.
