Oil exploration Hovercraft
Oil exploration Hovercraft – Hovercraft are assisting oil and gas companies locate new reserves in areas that cannot be easily reached by other vehicles.
The search for oil and gas reserves
There are many inter-tidal areas that other vehicles cannot reach, as well as areas where shallow or fast running waters restrict the use of boats.
In icy terrain, hovercraft can travel over ice and snow without the problems encountered by other vehicles – e.g. no wheels to slip, no propeller to get snagged on under water obstructions.
Hovercraft can travel over many different types of terrain. In the past we have supplied hovercraft to detect UXO, to provide safety and security patrols of oil and gas pipelines, and electricity supply pylons in areas out of reach to other vehicles.
Hovercraft can assist in Oil & Gas Exploration, Mineral Exploration, Military, Defense, UXO, and Security Applications, Agricultural Geophysics, Treasure Exploration, and Infrastructure, Dike & Levee Inspection and Groundwater Exploration.
In Archaeological Reconnaissance, vast areas can be rapidly surveyed to locate areas of interest. Hearths, habitation sites, graves, privies, foundation walls, burned structural poles and rocks used for construction are just a few of the archaeological targets detectable at significant depth with a Magnetometer.
