Environmental monitoring after drilling in French Guiana
The GMES-6 (the latest offshore exploration well in France) monitoring campaign on board the Proteus is successfully completed.
The operations went off without incident despite strong currents that made sediment sampling and abyssal bottom videos tricky into 25m targets over 2000m deep!
Water and plankton samples were also collected, all of which will be analyzed in the weeks and months to come.
This study is the latest in a long series begun nearly 10 years ago by Creocean in the French Guiana Permit.
