Sonar Bathymetric Surveys

In addition to standard water crossing assessments, and especially in cases of high consequence and/or high-risk water crossings, Explore offers Sonar Bathymetric Surveys.

Sonar Survey


Make the best possible decisions with Explore’s Sonar Bathymetric Survey services

Explore conducts these Sonar Bathymetric Survey’s with our specialized equipment.

The Bathymetric Survey Data enhances the operators understanding of the contours of the water body being crossed by the pipeline and then in conjunction with the hydrotechnical assessment is used to understand the deposition and removal of the water body. From here, decisions on Re-Bores or Remediation can be better determined when managing a non-compliant crossing with a low depth of coverage, and for the estimation of the remaining life on that existing crossing.

Simply put, Sonar Bathymetric Surveys help make the best possible decisions when managing High-Consequence and High-Risk crossings. Pricing details upon request.
