Pipeline Route Selection
Geophysical & Geotechnical Investigation

Mobil Producing Nigeria (MPN) has considered replacing the existing Yoho YP to Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) pipeline.

To inform this consideration, CARES was engaged by DeltaAfrik / MPN to carry out geophysical and geotechnical surveys along the pipeline route.

These surveys were conducted to determine the soil parameters for the pipeline route selection. A Multibeam Echo Sounder (MBES) was deployed for bathymetry and sea floor mapping.

CARES determined the soil parameters for the pipeline route selection and the results are due to be analysed and used during the detailed design phase.
