Image : Four Men. Twelve Hours. One Crucial Sample.

screen grab showing ROV moving IGT sampler toward jet of oil & gas

Once the manipulator arm secured the IGT sampler, it maneuvered the instrument toward the jet of oil and gas shooting out of the broken riser pipe (left). Here, the sampler’s thin snorkel can be seen approaching the jet. Technicians from Oceaneering handled the arm and ROV by remote control from the ship at the surface.
