Who We Are

PanGeo Subsea is a marine geophysical-geotechnical service delivery company specializing in high resolution true 3D volumetric acoustic imaging solutions to mitigate risk in offshore installations. PanGeo offers a technology solution to clients that supports accurate positioning and continuous visualization of cables and pipelines during depth of burial surveys; helps identify buried anomalies threatening integrity of pipe/cable in parallel with depth of burial survey; and provides true 3D volumetric imaging and accurate positioning of buried infrastructure for efficient site decommissioning. The patented technology interrogates the sub-seabed to provide a 3D image of the position of buried anomalies like boulders and Unexploded Ordnances (UXO) (including ferrous and non-ferrous) that support de-risking and micro-siting of offshore installations. Corporate headquarters are in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada with operations in Aberdeen, UK, and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada and a sale office in Virginia, USA.
