‘Fugro Synergy’ wins GoM work

Fugro and Cross Group Inc have been awarded a multi well intervention campaign contract which recently started in the Gulf of Mexico, using Fugro’s dynamically positioned multi-purpose drilling, well intervention and geotechnical vessel, Fugro Synergy.

The well intervention campaign involves utilisation of a top tensioned 6 5/8” riser and coiled tubing, and fieldwork for the contract is being undertaken jointly by the Cross Group Inc and Fugro.

“The tower on Fugro Synergy allows us to run pipe, as opposed to either using a crane over the side, or running riser-less well intervention equipment,” explained Kevin Bosley, Managing Director at Fugro Drilling and Well Services.

“In the current industry climate ‘added value’ is of paramount importance, and Fugro Synergy certainly adds significant value to such client operations, together with our ability to deliver a flexible contracting strategy,” he continued. “The Cross Group’s 7-inch work-over riser packages are being run from Fugro Synergy, with both of our organisations focused on providing joint capabilities for a total light well intervention solution.”

According to Fugro, Fugro Synergy was built in 2009 and it has a track record that includes a 2013 well abandonment campaign for Cairn Energy in Greenland where four exploration wells were permanently plugged and abandoned; and a deep water well de-risking campaign in 2014 which involved geotechnical and associated pilot hole (drilling and logging) services at drilling locations and field developments offshore Mexico.
