Upcoming Events

Offshore Site Investigation and Geotechnics (OSIG)


Integrated Site Marine Characterization Course
April 16-18, 2018
Fugro: 6100 Hillcroft Houston, TX 77081
Cost: Members $900 and Non-Members $1,000

A marine site investigation integrates geology, geophysics, and geotechnical data to develop the soil properties required to understand geological constraints and to gather information to design submarine foundations and layouts. The three-day comprehensive course covers survey planning, acquisition, interpretation, and integration of data, culminating with an in-depth presentation of several integrated case studies. The course is taught by recognized experts in these fields from energy company operators, service contractors, consultants, and academic institutions.

Who should attend?
Geoscientists, engineers, and managers who work, contract, and plan marine site survey and geotechnical programs for exploration and field development.
