Fugro to take part in Kaombo development offshore Angola

Fugro, a provider of survey services to the international offshore oil and gas industry, will provide offshore survey and positioning services at the Kaombo oil development offshore Angola.

Under a contract awarded by Technip, Fugro will provide offshore deepwater survey and positioning services to a total of seven installation vessels and construction support vessels.

The contract starts in the second half of 2016 and is scheduled to continue until early 2018.

Kaombo, operated by Total, is located in ultra-deep water, up to 2,000 metres, and it features pre-lay and as-built surveys, ultra-accurate subsea positioning and metrologies using the largest subsea transponder array ever deployed, Fugro said.

Peter Boon, Fugro’s Business Development Manager for Africa, said: “Fugro and Technip have been working together successfully for many years and our innovative solutions have provided them with reliable data, ensuring successful construction operations. This project is no exception. Our extensive experience in Angola also enables us to support the Kaombo project from our local base with a team that includes competent Angolan nationals.”

The Kaombo project is a development at Block 32, located approximately 260 kilometres offshore Luanda in water depths ranging from 1,400 to 2,000 metres. It includes six fields which will be tied back to two converted FPSOs.
