Operating one of its fleet of FCV 600 ROVs, specifically designed for North Sea drill support activities, Fugro will carry out drilling and completions projects at the Dana-operated Western Isles developments in the northern North Sea.

The scope of work covers standard drilling support, which begins this month, and intervention tooling support, with all ROV tooling designed and supplied by Fugro. This ensures 100% compatibility with the FCV 600 class of ROV and American Petroleum Institute (API) tooling standard 17D.

“This award from Dana Petroleum strengthens Fugro’s North Sea drill support business in the current challenging market,” said Mark Ward, Drill Support and ROV Project Manager at Fugro Subsea Services Limited. “It also recognises our objective to minimise operational costs without impacting on efficiency or safety standards. We are looking forward to assisting Dana Petroleum in meeting its targets.”

Fugro has been operational on board the Ocean Guardian since the summer of 2012 and completed a number of successful projects in the North Sea, Western Isles and West of Ireland, achieving a high level of productivity and receiving positive client feedback.
