CSA Attends NOIA Annual Meeting

CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) is one of 300 member companies participating in the National Ocean Industry Association (NOIA), a trade association involved in developing offshore energy resources in an environmentally responsible manner.

Two representatives from CSA (our Chief Operating Officer and our Energy Director) attended NOIA’s Fall Meeting held at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country in San Antonio from October 3 to 5. The meeting format included speaker presentations as well as panels of experts offering opportunities for discussion of domestic and international energy issues. The emphasis was on offshore topics including traditional oil and gas exploration and production activities as well as developing wind energy strategies and infrastructure.

CSA Expands Deepwater Survey Technology and Equipment

  • Written by CSA Ocean Sciences
  • Category: Blog
CSA Ocean Sciences has recently developed and deployed a new Deepwater Survey System capable of collecting data in 6000 m of water.

With the world exploring and harnessing the resources of the deep ocean, environmental data collection programs have had to expand their capability to collect data and samples in deeper and deeper depths. This upgrade in capability is not only needed for the instruments that are subjected to the extreme pressures of the deep, but also for the handling gear that has to lower these instruments to the seabed and recover them. Sediment, water, current, plankton, and seabed imagery are common datasets required for environmental programs such as an Environmental Baseline Survey conducted by oil and gas corporations to comply with their internal standards and local government regulations.
