Kelvin Chow

Business Line Manager Geophysics
Kelvin Chow, with nearly 20 years of experience in marine geophysics, involving in geo-hazards and engineering surveys for oil and gas related projects since early 90s, holds a Bachelor Honours degree in Applied Geology and a Master degree in Business Administration. He is overall responsible for the business development and performance of the geophysics business line of Fugro Survey in South East Asia, including formulating and developing new service divisions that focus in deepwater survey techniques and applications. He has been heavily involved in numerous deepwater survey projects in the region, an active member of the Fugro Deepwater Technical Evaluation and Development Team, and will be managing the first Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) to be stationed in the Asia Pacific region.
Evolving Geosciences and Survey Technologies,
Preparation for Deepwater Challenges

Deep Insight into:

Deepwater Geohazards
Over the continental shelf, some of the typical deepwater geohazrds of major concerns:
Rapid sedimentation process / turbidity flow
Highly complex and unstable seabed and shallow sub-seabed foundation
Active geology – complex faulting activities, continuous seafloor deformation, highly undulated and
rugged seabed topography
Shallow geo-pressures - mud volcanoes, diapirs and fluid vents
Drilling hazards
Deep sea environmental issues

Geophysical Survey Data
To effectively and efficiently study / predict deepwater geohazards:
Multibeam echo sounder
Side scan sonar
Multiple Sub-bottom Profiling Data
Surface and sub-sea positioning

Geophysical Survey Design and Concerns
Due to the huge water column; some of the prime considerations:
Signal power and frequency selection – a vertical accuracy and vertical resolution issue
Signal spreading and fresnel zone – a horizontal accuracy and horizontal resolution issue
Data density and reliability issue and concern
Surface and sub-sea positioning issue and concern
