TDI-Brooks International, Inc. has now completed the geophysical and geotechnical phases for the Texas Colt Pipeline. The scope for the Offshore Pipeline route investigation was from the HDD/DP exit nearshore Freeport in approximately 20 feet WD to the proposed Offshore Platform at Block BA466 in approximately 110 feet WD. a distance of approx. 31 miles.

TDI-Brooks’ vessel, the R/V Brooks McCall, was deployed to complete phase one to perform the pipeline route geophysical (Hazard/Arch/Bathymetry) survey apx 5000ft from the shore line off Freeport, Texas to BA466 and GA465. TDI-Brooks vessel, the R/V Proteus, was deployed to complete phase two of the project which consisted of 6 & 9m piston cores, box cores and piston cores, JPC and gCPT.

The Brooks McCall has just completed a ‘heavy’ geotechnical project for LLOG at the King’s Quay development in the central GoM.The BMCC remains operational in the Gulf of Mexico and available for spot charters in the US GoM/East Coast/Caribbean out of its homeport of Freeport, TX. The BMCC’s primary market niche in the Gulf/US East Coast is geotechnical coring/CPT and survey acquisitions.  The BMCC is available for pipeline hazard, cable route surveys, debris mapping, P-Cable, MBES, metocean, sand search, and environmental studies.
