Dutch company Fugro has been awarded a geotechnical site investigation contract by ONGC India for the KG-DWN-98/2 project offshore the eastern 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, begin before the end of the third quarter of 2016.
According to Fugro, the fieldwork will be followed by laboratory testing, data analysis, interpretation and integration with previous Fugro-acquired AUV Geophysical and Metocean data to provide site characterisation reports. The Dutch company did not reveal the financial details of the contract.
