Fugro has been awarded a geotechnical site investigation contract by ONGC India for the KG-DWN-98/2 project on the East Coast of India. The purpose of the work is to gather site specific geotechnical and geohazard data to aid in the design and later installation of wellheads, manifolds, platforms, FPSO anchors, umbilicals, pipelines and flow lines within the field.
Fugro will deploy its deep water geotechnical vessel, Fugro Voyager, which will perform work in water depths ranging from 50m to 1,500m, commencing before end of Q3 2016. The fieldwork will be followed by extensive laboratory testing, data analysis, interpretation and integration with previous Fugro acquired AUV Geophysical and Metocean data to provide site characterisation reports. Fugro has an extensive deep water track record supporting deep water field developments offshore India.
