Forging Improvements in Oil Spill Response, Dispersant Application, & Monitoring

The Seanic/CSA team will create innovation through a strategic partnership.

Seanic Ocean Systems Inc. (Seanic) and CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) are responding to challenges faced by the oil industry to address increasing regulations and environmental stewardship concerns. This strategic partnership merges technology and environmental expertise with the goal of improving oil spill response equipment and services. Innovative solutions developed by Seanic and CSA will provide much-needed support to the oil industry, which is under increasing pressure to maximize efficiency while minimizing risk and environmental impact.

Both companies already support the oil spill response needs of the energy industry, providing a range of specialized equipment and services, from engineered solutions to oceanographic sensors and from testing and maintenance to developing dispersant monitoring plans. Forging this partnership integrates the skills and experience of each company, resulting in better service to both industry and the environment.

“Seanic’s Remote Systems Technology combined with CSA’s experience in Environmental Sciences will allow us to approach oil spill response, particularly the application and monitoring of dispersants, in a unique and innovative manner,” stated Kevin Peterson, President of CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. “As environmental regulations evolve, water depths increase, and locations become more remote, cost-effective solutions based on solid science and technology become more important than ever.”

Seanic brings expertise in ROV tooling, engineered solutions, and the maintenance and improvement of oil spill equipment. Their corporate headquarters in Katy, Texas offers state-of-the-art facilities for manufacturing, testing, storage, and maintenance of equipment, including stabilized yard space, a tool pool, storage warehouse, and a 500,000-gallon in-ground wet test tank. Overseas facilities in Scotland, Norway, Australia, and Singapore support international operations.

CSA brings 46 years of specialized experience in marine environmental consulting, serving the energy industry worldwide through offices in the United States, the Eastern Mediterranean, Qatar, Trinidad, Singapore, and Australia. CSA’s expertise in coastal, marine, and deep ocean surveys, sampling, monitoring, assessment, and mitigation is built on the integration of science, operations, and an understanding of environmental data collection, management, and analysis within geospatial domains.
