Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


The SERPENT Project, Scientific & Environmental ROV Partnership using Existing iNdustrial
Technology, is a collaboration between world leading scientific institutions and companies
associated with the oil and gas industry. SERPENT is hosted at the National Oceanography
Centre, Southampton (NOCS), one of the worlds’ largest research and teaching organisations
specialising in deep-sea science and oceanography. SERPENT encompasses a scientific network
of academic partners across the world (USA, Canada, Brazil, Africa, Australia), linked to a
network of major oil and gas operators and contractors. The project centres around the
opportunistic use of ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles) in operational settings during periods of
stand-by time. The project also aims to maximise the scientific benefit of environmental data
collected as part of routine offshore operations and environmental surveys. Through access to
ROVs and such environmental data scientists at NOCS and from the wider SERPENT partnership
aim to improve the scientific understanding of the deep-sea's biodiversity in all its aspects. This
document presents the cruise reports for SERPENT missions carried out from 2008 to 2010 and
includes a history of all previous SERPENT missions.
