Fugro wins rig positioning deal with Statoil

Fugro, a Dutch provider of offshore and onshore geotechnical and survey services, has won a long-term contract for the provision of rig positioning services to Norwegian oil major Statoil.

Fugro said last week that the contract included positioning of all Statoil-operated rigs and associated vessels on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

The company added that its specialized satellite positioning systems, and all available navigation satellites including GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and Galileo, would be permanently installed on the Statoil-operated rigs and vessels.

According to Fugro, the robustness and accuracy of these satellite systems, which is better than three centimeters, in conjunction with the company’s latest navigation software and technology developments, will ensure the best possible service for Statoil.

Also, by remotely configuring the offshore systems from Fugro’s onshore bases, mobilization time will be reduced, and fast-track operations will be enabled, the company stated.
