Piston Cores for Neptun Block Project in Black Sea, carried out for D’Appolonia SpA (Contractor Fugro Alluvial, Client EXXON). Were executed 14 Piston Cores 15m long between 356 and 1090 meters water depth. The setup of the CARMA® Piston Corer has been changed every core, based on CPT’s data, when known.

The average of the recovery ratio achieved has been of 83%, with a peak of 97%, coincided with a sample of 14.43m long! 160m of samples recovered in this project and the acceleration data were been logged for all coring.
