Marine Positioning

Marine Positioning

Extensive GIS and AutoCAD Databases at Your Disposal

Marine positioning applications are challenging; the ability to position a rig, install a pipeline, or perform cable installation can be compromised by everything from water depth to working in adverse weather conditions. TBS brings to our marine positioning services an extensive GIS and AutoCAD database of onshore, shelf, and offshore wells, pipeline and platform data, and hazard locations.
