The Norwegian submarine services company Reach Subsea announced Monday that it has been awarded a contract in the Gulf of Mexico in the United States for execution in late 2021 and 2022, which represents approximately 230 days of the project.

As reported last week, Reach Subsea agreed to purchase OCTIO AS, a provider of monitoring solutions for oil and gas production fields and CO2 storage tanks, from Equinor Ventures.
OCTIO carries out geophysical studies which lead to global monitoring strategies; plans and executes operations and provides support to integrate data into interpretation workflows.
The company’s main technological proposals are real-time passive seismic monitoring and survey-based 4D gravity and seabed subsidence monitoring that provide an alternative to seismic at 10% of the cost and with no impact on marine life, said Reach. OCTIO surveillance technologies are typically deployed and retrieved using ROVs.
