Blue Ocean Seismic Services Background

Blue Ocean Seismic Services (Blue Ocean) is an innovative maritime robotics
focussed technology company with significant shareholders including BP and
Our vision is to disrupt the marine seismic industry through the development and
commercialisation of a large-scale autonomous ocean bottom seismic data
acquisition system, driving a step change reduction in the cost, time, HSE risks and
environmental impact associated with acquiring high quality marine seismic data.
These reductions in survey cost make ocean bottom seismic attainable to a broader
range of customers including for carbon capture and storage (CCS) and offshore
wind farm site survey applications. By significantly reducing the carbon footprint of
seismic surveys our technology assists clients in their push towards a net-zero
Blue Ocean’s revolutionary integrated seismic acquisition system is based around
large numbers of intelligent, long endurance, uncrewed underwater vehicles
These Blue Ocean developed UUVs are capable of multiple autonomous seabed
repositions to allow rapid, remote repositioning of deployed seabed receiver arrays
without the need to recover and redeploy by ROV. This, in combination with
automated launch, recovery & handling systems, rapid deployment/recovery, and
intelligent system control, allows for optimisation of seismic acquisition survey
operations and removes the requirement for ROV vessel support.
We are a dynamic, friendly, diverse, and inclusive workplace and welcome all
applications. We consider safety and security a priority.
