Pipeline Route And Depth-Of-Cover Survey Considerations

Geophysical and geotechnical survey techniques used for shallow water pipeline route investigations can also be used to determine the pipeline depth of burial in shallow water regimes. Multidiscipline surveys enable: 1) mitigation of risks from natural or man-made seafloor hazards; 2) regulatory compliance (archaeological, integrity management, shallow hazards); and 3) establishment of design criteria for pipeline, cable, template, etc. By operating several data acquisition systems simultaneously, a wide range of survey objectives can be accommodated quickly, minimizing survey costs to client companies. Multidiscipline survey techniques will provide data not only for depth of c
