FALMOUTH, UK – Coastline Surveys has completed a pre-decommissioning environmental survey for Energy Resource Technology (UK), a division of HELIX.

The program was in preparation for decommissioning of the Camelot CA production platform and associated subsea infrastructure in block 53/1a in the UK southern North Sea.

The M/V Flatholm performed a geophysical survey, using high resolution Reson 8125 Multi-beam and Edgetech sidescan sonar equipment, followed by grab sampling, video and stills camera work at predetermined sites, and drill cuttings pile assessment under the OSPAR Recommendation 2006/5.
