2023 Ongoing Geophysical and Geotechnical Surveys:

Attentive Energy has contracted TDI-Brooks International and Fugro to perform high resolution geophysical and geotechnical surveys in support of its New York Bight Project (in BOEM Lease Area OCS-A 0538). These survey operations are active.

The intent of the reconnaissance geophysical survey is to acquire multibeam echosounder, side scan sonar, gradiometer, parametric sub-bottom profiler and high-resolution 2D seismic data of such resolution and quality to be able to fully characterize the seafloor and the shallow subsurface. Geotechnical surveys will be conducted to acquire soil samples and ground conditions to determine future design parameters for our project site and to fulfill the applicable regulatory requirements stipulated by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries (NOAA Fisheries).

The RV Miss Emma McCall and PSV Regulus are expected to continue operations through May 2023.
