A marine site investigation integrates geology, geophysics, and geotechnical data to develop the soil properties required to understand geological constraints and to gather information to design submarine foundations and layouts. Who should attend? Geoscientists, engineers, and managers who work, contract, and plan marine site survey and geotechnical programs for exploration and field development.
The two-day comprehensive course covers survey planning, acquisition, interpretation, and integration of data, culminating with an in-depth presentation of integrated case studies. The course is taught by recognized experts in these fields from oil companies, service contractors, and consulting companies.
