METOC Autonomous, Real-Time Meteorological and Oceanographic Data Collection

Overview Library

The autonomous solutions provided by Schlumberger Robotics Services can help you collect a wide range of real-time marine data, delivered directly to your desk. Obtain critical measurements of weather, wind speed and direction, air and water temperature, salinity, barometric pressure, near-surface currents, wave height, and more.

By using 100% renewably powered unmanned surface vehicles, we significantly reduce the expense, time, and risk incurred by vessels and crews to deploy, recover, or maintain buoy networks. Remotely piloted, this technology enables the vehicle to perform either single-point monitoring or wider-area metocean surveys. Accessing this information will help you in the successful planning and installation of offshore facilities and enable safer seismic, drilling, and intervention operations, especially near offshore obstructions.
