SEEP Autonomous Marine Hydrocarbon Detection

Overview Library

Schlumberger Robotics Services provides remotely piloted hydrocarbon detection at the water surface. Using completely autonomous and renewably powered solutions, we can determine the concentration of residual hydrocarbons and whether it results from a naturally occurring seep or from nearby well operations.

This vital information can be accessed in near real time from our customer web portal, enabling you to quickly evaluate environmental impact and implement the appropriate response.

Integrating a series of different fluorometers, our unmanned surface technology provides measurements to distinguish different parts of the hydrocarbon chain, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and a broad band of dissolved crude and fine oil components, in addition to turbidity and chlorophyll a.
