Offshore Geotechnical Drilling
The Gardline Geotechnical Group owns and operates 7 drilling vessels which come complete with heave compensated offshore drill rigs. Gardline can also offer additional flexibility with two, stand alone, heave compensated, drill rigs that can be mobilised onto vessels of opportunity anywhere in the world.
Currently the company has vessels operating in Asia, the Americas and Europe. However, Gardline does work worldwide and the geographical position of the vessels is open to change.
The drill rigs use standard API steel drill pipe and have a capability to drill to 600m, as standard. Please enquire for deeper investigations. Wireline tools are available for deployment inside the drill pipe to perform Cone Penetration Tests (CPT) and to recover undisturbed Shelby samples. The drilling system also incorporates a coring facility enabling core recovery of soil and rock. The wireline system can also be used to raise and lower downhole geophysical logging tools. Several of the vessels operate seabed CPT as well to enable intensive seabed CPT campaigns.
