Fugro and the Colombian Maritime Authority (Dirección General Maritima; DIMAR) have completed a joint environmental seep hunting study to help assess the country’s resource potential in the Caribbean Sea.

The study involved shallow seabed sediment coring, geochemical analyses, and seabed heat flow measurements.

The field programme was conducted in two phases onboard DIMAR’s new multipurpose hydrographic vessel, ARC Roncador. Fugro mobilised specialised equipment for the testing, including two self-contained laboratories and a heat flow probe.
