Marine Geotechnics 

Close cooperation with WorleyParsons’ structural, pipelines, environmental and coastal & marine engineers allows the delivery of the most complex offshore and nearshore projects from one multidisciplinary team.



  • Geotechnical and geophysical offshore site investigations
  • Offshore foundation design for monotonic and cyclic loading
  • Anchoring systems
  •  Driven, bored, or drilled and grouted pile foundations including axial and lateral loading assessments and t-z and p-y analyses
  • Advanced geological assessments including sedimentology, petrography and stratigraphy
  • Pipeline route assessment
  • Pile drivability assessment and testing
  • Conductor installation
  • Spudcan-pile interaction analysis
  • Suction caisson design and installation
  • Skirted mudmats for sea floor structures
  • Shallow GBS foundations
  • Numerical analysis

We are also experienced in executing marine investigations using barge, jackup, diver operated and remote seabed site investigation tools.


Nearshore developments such as mine-to-market solutions, pipeline shore crossings, port developments or coastal protection projects require specialist geotechnical and geological services.


  • Geotechnical and geophysical investigations
  • Bathymetry
  • Karstic and coastal assessments
  • Three dimensional geological and geotechnical modelling
  • Seawall foundation design
  • Dredging assessments
  • Seabed slope stability assessments
  • Pipeline shore crossings
  • Pipeline scour and protection measures
  • Trenching and horizontal directional drilling advice
  • Jetty, wharf and bridge foundation design
  • Sheetpile wall design and installation
  • Structural anchoring systems
  • Pile drivability assessment and testing
