Fugro provides offshore survey and positioning services at flagship Angolan project

Fugro is to provide offshore survey and positioning services at the Kaombo oil development offshore Angola.

Luanda, Angola

Under a contract awarded by Technip, Fugro will provide offshore deepwater survey and positioning services to a total of seven installation vessels and construction support vessels. The number of vessels as well as the stringent schedule for the work requires complex simultaneous operations.

Described by operator Total as ‘a new frontier in Angolan oil and gas,’ Kaombo is a landmark project that presents significant geological and technical challenges. Located in ultra-deep water (up to 2,000 metres), it features pre-lay and as-built surveys, ultra-accurate subsea positioning and metrologies using the largest subsea transponder array ever deployed.

Peter Boon, Fugro’s Business Development Manager for Africa highlights how the company meets the challenges of the simultaneous operations and complex logistics involved in this project. “Fugro and Technip have been working together successfully for many years and our innovative solutions have provided them with reliable data, ensuring successful construction operations. This project is no exception. Our extensive experience in Angola also enables us to support the Kaombo project from our local base with a team that includes competent Angolan nationals.”

The Kaombo project is a development at Block 32, located approximately 260 kilometres offshore Luanda in water depths ranging from 1,400 to 2,000 metres. It includes six fields which will be tied back to two converted FPSOs.

The contract commences in the second half of 2016 and is scheduled to continue until early 2018.
