Fugro awarded geotechnical investigation work off India
Fugro will begin a major program of geotechnical investigations under a contract awarded by ONGC.
Valued at about $26 million, the contract involves site investigation work to gather geotechnical andgeohazard data at the field, which is located in the KG-DWN-98/2 block off the east coast of India. The information will support the design and subsequent installation of wellheads, manifolds, platforms, FPSO anchors, umbilicals, pipelines, and flowlines.
Fugro will deploy its deepwater geotechnical vesselFugro Voyager, which will perform the work in water depths ranging from 50 to 1,500 m (164 to 4,921 ft). The fieldwork will be followed by extensive laboratory testing, data analysis, interpretation, and integration with other data acquired by Fugro.
For ONGC’s site characterization reports, Fugro said it will integrate the geotechnical and geohazard data from this project with metocean data and AUV geophysical survey data it had acquired previously at this field.
The work is due to begin before the end of 3Q.
