Offshore Geophysical Surveys

Offshore Geophysical Surveys

Building upon our years of survey experience, DoC Mapping now provides Offshore Geophysical Surveys. In early August of 2021, we mobilized our first vessel to offer comprehensive Geophysical Survey Services to our clients. On August 29th, 2021, the Louisiana Gulf Coast fell victim to Hurricane Ida which made landfall at Port Fourchon, LA causing extensive damage to the offshore oil and gas industry’s infrastructure. DoC Mapping was positioned and ready to assist our clients in mitigating their safety and environmental concerns following this major weather event.

In almost 3 years, we have performed 49 offshore Geophysical Survey projects totaling over 8,100 nautical miles of data collection for 18 clients across the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to assisting the industry following Hurricane Ida, we have provided surveys in support of our client’s Archaeological and Hazard survey needs. These surveys assist in attaining government permits for decommissioning as well as pipeline installation activities and are performed with total adherence to issued Notice to Lessees (NTL’s) requirements. Our survey activities have also supported the government sector through the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Artificial Reef program.  Our team includes a Qualified Marine Archaeologist, Geophysicist, GIS/CAD technician and field operations personnel.
