Statoil in Tanzania-2

Benthic, a global geosciences company, broke its own water depth record using the PROD3 seabed drill. The previous record of 2,754 meters was set on a Statoil project in Tanzania, and was beaten with two deployments to 2,776 meters (9,107 feet) a few weeks later on the Anadarko project off the coast of Mozambique.

The record breaking dive was one of a series of 5 deepwater investigations carried out over a 4 day period in June that included in-situ testing and sample recovery. The Portable Remotely Operated Drill unit 3, PROD3, has carried out geotechnical and geohazard investigations on over 200 sites for Anadarko in Mozambique and recovered over 20 tons of seabed material including sediments and carbonate rock cores.
