Fugro started integrated survey work offshore India for the country’s oil and gas company ONGC, under a three-year contract valued at approximately US$7.7 million.
The contract, awarded to Fugro for the third consecutive time, calls for engineering surveys in field developments off both western and eastern shores of India. The scope of the work includes bathymetric surveys, seabed mapping, shallow seismic profiling and well head investigation.
Fugro will deploy the survey vessel Fugro Mapper from September 2017 in order to perform surveys in water depths ranging from 10-100m.
“We have been supporting these field developments offshore India with our marine site characterization services for more than two decades,” said Mike Dravitzki, Fugro’s regional director.
