Projects and Operations - August 1, 2003

| More
C&C Technologies recently completed an AUV site investigation survey off the coast of Angola for ExxonMobil.

During the 34-day project, C&C's AUV, aboard the R/V Rig Supporter, collected high-resolution multi-beam bathymetry, side scan sonar and sub-bottom profiler data in water depths ranging from 500m to 900m.

While collecting over 3,100km of data, the AUV utilized acoustic modems to transfer sub-sampled data to the R/V Rig Supporter for QA/QC measures performed by route engineers.

Since becoming operational in January 2001, C&C's AUV has performed more than 24,000km of surveys on 47 different projects for government agencies and the oil and gas industry.

The water depths for these projects range from 100-2,850m and encompass different levels of complexity.

Some of the more high profile projects have been locating historical World War II shipwrecks, performing pipeline investigation surveys and surveying through a full-scale production FPSO location.
