Who we are

Ocean Geo Solutions is an independent company specializing in interpretation and reporting of geophysical and geotechnical data. We have a new name but our company has been around for over 20 years and has earned a reputation for customer service and technical capability. 

The company was formed as Gardline Surveys Inc in 1998, a subsidiary of the Gardline group in United Kingdom. In 2018 the company became independent of Gardline and a new name was chosen to represent our core business of providing solutions for offshore operations.
