Fugro conducts seep survey and geochemical campaign for PETRONAS Suriname E&P B.V.

Fugro is conducting a seep survey and geochemical campaign in Block 48, offshore Suriname, for PETRONAS Suriname E&P B.V. (PSEPBV). PSEPBV is a subsidiary of PETRONAS, a global energy and solutions partner ranked amongst the largest corporations in the Fortune Global 500.

The work for PSEBV is being conducted from the survey vessel MV Fugro Brasilis and involves geophysical data collection, heat flow measurements, core sampling and onboard geochemical analyses, which aim to optimise future exploration activities in this frontier area. The fieldwork for the campaign will run through Q1 2021 with subsequent geochemical analyses and final reports delivered in May 2021.

As a global leader in hydrocarbon seep mapping, Fugro maintains a multidisciplinary team of geophysicists, geoscientists and geochemists skilled in seeps data collection, processing and interpretation. Over the past 10 years, this group has performed more than 3 million km2 of seep studies. A key component of Fugro’s success is their capacity to perform all screening geochemical analyses at sea and share project data with shore-based clients in near real time. This approach, which is unique to Fugro, enables rapid identification of high potential cores, thereby streamlining the project schedule and minimising impact on the marine environment. The ability to perform onboard analyses and remote data sharing also reduces travel and shipping requirements, contributing to more efficient and sustainable survey operations.

Brian Hottman, Fugro’s Director for Caribbean and Pacific South America, said: ”The Suriname-Guyana Basin is shaping up to be a world-class petroleum system, and PSEPBV is poised to be a major player in this region, as demonstrated by their successful results from the Sloanea-1 exploration well located in Block 52. We look forward to supporting their continued success in the region by defining high-potential areas within Block 48 and helping develop Suriname’s vital resources in a safe and responsible manner.”
