OEMG team members have been involved in a wide range of Aquares Resistivity Projects. They include:
Luderitz, Namibia – Senior Surveyor
Namport requested CSIR and Demco NV to carry out a combined resistivity, boomer and side scan survey in the port of Luderitz, Namibia. The boomer and side scan surveys were carried out by CSIR while the resistivity survey was carried out by Demco using the Aquares Resistivity System. All three systems were run simultaneously. The aim of the survey was to map subsurface geology in view of the planned port expansion.
Pre-dredge Survey, Mussafah Channel Abu Dhabi
This project was to provide information on a calcarinite layer within the dredge area.
Dredging reconnaissance surveys along the UAE and Mussendam coastlines
This project utilised the Aquares resistivity system developed by Demco Surveys, single beam surveys and positioning.
Djibouti Geophysical Assessment
This project involved undertaking a sub bottom survey of the area for the proposed container terminal. The water depth in the survey area varied between 2 and 20m with the client requiring 40m penetration. Despite the difficult conditions, we worked with the client to modify the system producing a dedicated tow cable that achieved good data to 35m below ACD.
