Fugro – a leading provider of geo-intelligence and asset integrity solutions company – has been awarded multiple contracts by oil and gas exploration company, Eni Angola.
Under the agreements, Fugro will conduct geotechnical and environmental surveys offshore Angola between March and May, using two of its specialist geotechnical and geophysical vessels from their global fleet already active in the region.
“Our vessels are supporting Eni in Angola and delivering a range of specialized geo-data services,” said Jaco Stemmet, Director for Africa, Fugro. “These projects are two great examples of how we unlock insights to help our clients design, build and operate their assets in Africa in a safe, sustainable and efficient manner.”
The vessels will gather data that will assist Eni Angola in defining the mechanical and physical properties of the soil for its subsea facilities. The Fugro Scout, a multipurpose vessel, will conduct a survey to acquire, analyze and interpret sediment and water samples from Eni Angola’s Agogo field development.
A second vessel, the Fugro Helmert, will conduct a route survey in Angola’s nearshore areas, including various environmental, geotechnical and geophysical surveys, to allow Eni Angola to determine the best installation route and optimize cable burial protection for the New Gas Consortium.
