BlueDeal - Environmental monitoring for drilling campaigns

A turn-key environmental monitoring service for drilling campaigns and shorter operations in sensitive areas. We customize a monitoring and detection scheme based on your functional requirements, and conduct the 24/7 monitoring and reporting on behalf of our clients.
