Comprehensive acoustic services
Our services encompass all types of underwater noise impact assessments related to oil and gas exploration and production and geoscience, including:
Seismic and geophysical surveys
Drill ships and platforms
Support vessels of all types
Construction, nearshore and offshore
Port and terminal construction and expansion, and subsequent vessel traffic
Effective project management: Liaison with all stakeholders
In large projects with numerous subcontractors and/or joint sponsors, logistics are complex. In such a project environment, the technical regulations for preventing underwater acoustic impacts can be especially challenging to implement.
JASCO’s experienced project managers and field scientists liaise with project sponsors, contractors, and regulators to ensure that the scope of our work is targeted to meet all objectives. We help stakeholders find common ground between environmental conservation and operational feasibility, so operations can be designed and executed with minimal environmental impact and in full compliance with regulations while still heeding project scope considerations.
We help our clients determine what is needed and when, including:
What the regulations are
How the regulations apply to each project and operation
What measures are required (predictive sound modelling, measurements, mitigation, etc.)
How those measures may be implemented
Our equipment is readily tailored to our clients’ constraints and resources. We deploy equipment from project work vessels of any size, from large survey vessels, to support tugs, to small rigid inflatables. Our compact, lightweight instruments require little space onboard ship and transfer easily between vessels to accommodate changing operational constraints and conditions. We also offer fully containerized solutions for large-scale deployments of multiple recording stations.
Our extensive range of measurement capabilities offers versatile solutions to satisfy our clients’ requirements:
Autonomous underwater recorders for short and long deployments
Acoustic telemetry buoys for real-time monitoring
Towed arrays for passive acoustic monitoring of marine life
Cabled hydrophones for nearshore measurements
Cabled hydrophones deployed from vessels for rapid measurements and characterizations
