Lineage Gardline Geosurvey Limited carried out a rig site survey for Falkland Oil and Gas Limited (FOGL) in March 2011. Survey vessel MV Ocean Endeavour surveyed a 5km x 3km area in Hero block 31/18. Sampling techniques included single and multi beam echo sounders to determine water depths and digital footage of the seabed was taken using a deep water DTS6000 camera system from 6 environmental camera stations. Water quality and sediment quality was measured using a CTD Probe (conductivity, temperature, depth), box corers and grab samplers from two stations. Sediment samples were later analysed for physio-chemical properties and infaunal macroinvertebrate identification. The report with data is available.
