Work is now under way on the latest contract, which covers infield developments on the east and west coasts of India. The survey services include pipeline route engineering and rig site surveys using multibeam bathymetric, shallow seismic profiling, magnetometry and 2D UHR, along with rig positioning, current profile measurements and wellhead searches.
Fugro’s dedicated geophysical survey vessel, the Fugro Mapper, is mobilised to perform the surveys in water depths of up to 100 m. Geo-data results from the engineering surveys will provide ONGC with the seabed and sub-seabed insights they need to develop key offshore infrastructure.
Remmelt de Jong, Fugro’s Director for Marine Site Characterisation in the Middle East and India, said: “Being awarded this multi-year contract for the fourth consecutive time demonstrates the value Fugro has brought to Indian offshore development and our clients. We are especially proud of the strong relationship we have forged with ONGC and we intend to maintain the exemplary health and safety record we achieved in the three previous contracts, with no major downtime or zero lost time incidents over the last 9 years.”
