At Browse, PROD3 will perform in situ testing and sampling to identify the soil conditions and geotechnical properties, penetrating to depths of up to 35 m (115 ft) below the mudline, in water depths reaching 620 m (2,034 ft).

The Jaya Vigilant will then transit to the Greater Enfield site to undertake similar investigations.
