LEIDCHENDAM, Netherlands -- Fugro Chance has completed an acoustic jumper metrology on Shell’s Perdido development in the Gulf of Mexico. The work was done on behalf of Oceaneering International, Shell’s jumper installation contractor.

Fugro Chance performed the acoustic jumper metrology using a Wideband Medium Frequency (MF) acoustic positioning system -- the jumper spanned two pipeline sleds in a water depth of 9,625 ft (2,934 m).

The selection of the MF acoustic positioning system allowed for the latest integrated acoustic hardware to be used, along with orthodox ROV sensors. This resulted in the minimum of hardware (two acoustic beacons) being required to perform the project, the company says.
