Fugro secures Trinidad and Gulf of Mexico deepwater contracts

Fugro has won three contracts with BHP Petroleum (Deepwater), for exploration and production operations in Trinidad and Tobago and the Gulf of Mexico.

Within Trinidad’s Block 3(a) Fugro is providing geophysical and geotechnical services to support the development of the Ruby field. From its deepwater survey vessel, Fugro Searcher, Fugro will conduct 3DHR seismic surveys, seabed clearance and shallow hazards surveys, a flowline corridor survey and a shallow geotechnical survey. For the geotechnical site investigations, the workscope includes drilling, laboratory analysis and engineering reporting.

To service a long-term contract, Fugro has installed its custom-designed FCV 3000 ROV equipment onboard Transocean’s ultra-deepwater drillship, Deepwater Invictus, for subsea ROV support at drilling campaigns in Trinidad and Tobago, the US Gulf of Mexico, and Mexico.

These operations commenced in June this year and continue until May 2020.

Fugro’s USA president Ed Saade said: “We are very pleased to have commenced operations at these significant deepwater developments in the Americas. Our specialised geophysical, geotechnical and drill support services enable Fugro to support the entire lifecycle of offshore oilfields like these.”
