Fugro has been awarded a contract of around USD 90 million by Mexico’s national oil company PEMEX for ultra deep water geotechnical and pilot hole (drilling and logging) services associated with the de-risking of drilling locations and field developments planned offshore Mexico. The overall duration of geoconsulting and drilling activity is expected to be 14 months.
“This contract award represents a further strengthening of Fugro’s long and successful history in working with PEMEX and reinforces Fugro’s market leadership internationally as the preferred service provider for deepwater and ultra deepwater geotechnical data gathering, interpretation and consulting services, ” said Fugro in a press release.
Fugro utilises ultra deepwater vessels such as the Fugro Synergy for work of this nature.
Fugro’s geotechnical soil data collection, lab testing and consultancy services are centered around onshore and offshore site investigation. The geotechnical information is used to design foundations for offshore structures, on and offshore pipelines, ports, large buildings, bridges, and other infrastructure.
