Fugro has been awarded a contract for site characterisation services in support of one of the largest long-term field development programmes in the United Arab Emirates.
Commencing April 2023, Fugro will perform a series of offshore surveys including geophysical, geotechnical and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) inspections supported by advanced engineering and geoconsulting studies to help inform the Front End Engineering Design (FEED). The project consists of approximately 600 km pipeline route assessment with 800 crossings, 49 jacket surveys and island offshore surveys.
Near real-time insights into the ground conditions will be available using Fugro’s remote data management solutions. Delivered via Fugro’s digital platform, these insights will allow the client to reduce uncertainties related to ground conditions, make timely and well-informed design decisions and realise significant capital expenditure savings across the field development programme.
Tim Lyle, Group Director Middle East and India at Fugro said: “We are delighted to be supporting a project of such calibre. This significant award will allow Fugro to support our client’s vision and sustainability targets whilst strengthening our commitment to in-country value (ICV) by working closely with our local supply chain.”
