ROV OBN deployment


Mapping the deep ocean floor – and what lies beneath – for knowledge has been the challenge we’ve worked hard to overcome over decades. Our experienced technical experts and our advanced technology mean we can deliver the best high-quality, cost-efficient deep water ocean bottom data acquisition in the industry for you.
Currently, we use established nodal technology, combined with a mix of Shearwater source assets and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) vessels. But we are always advancing.
This, combined with our unique source offerings, operational excellence and health, safety and environment culture, make us a safe choice bottom node provider.

Shaping seismic

We love a challenge. And when that challenge means bringing you efficiency, higher quality and reduced costs, we can’t rest.

Our desire to discover the secrets below the ocean floor is surging. But costs and operational inefficiencies have often hampered exploration. Until now…
We’ve converted the SW Tasman to control remotely operated vehicles and launched the industry’s only dedicated dual remote operated vehicle, seismic multipurpose vessel.
Our unique vessel can do the job of several. With SW Tasman’s unrivalled combination of dual ROVs for node deployment and recovery, full source capability, and highly experienced operations team, we can deliver the highest quality results and efficient seabed surveys for you.
