Get to know your seabed.

Our survey and geoengineering expertise helps you understand, and manage the seabed and sub-seabed, managing risk, and helping optimise development and operations, from concept to decommissioning.


At KLL we understand that for offshore engineering developments or operations to run smoothly this must start at the seabed and in the shallow sub-seabed foundation zone. If seabed and shallow subsurface information is not accurate and comprehensive, or is not used effectively or efficiently, this can lead to huge delays in projects, or at worst, cancelled projects.

We apply a true understanding of the value of knowledge derived from seabed and subsurface surveys, and other geospatial data acquisition, and how best to process, interpret, use and share such data, ensuring your project team has a fully comprehensive knowledge of these key project factors, helping you to make the most informed decisions.

What we offer

We provide a wide range of integrated services including technical assurance, engineering assessment and design, geohazard assessment, subsea inspection services, and as well as project management services for exploration and development well sites, wind farm sites, pipeline and cable routes and lay operations, subsea construction, inspection and rock placement.
