Ophir picks Fugro for survey offshore Equatorial Guinea

Fugro, an integrator of geotechnical, survey, subsea and geosciences services, has been awarded a contract for the provision of survey services for the development of assets and infrastructure offshore Equatorial Guinea.

The survey programme will take place at the Fortuna Project, within the Block R, to the west of Bioko Island. The contract has been awarded by Ophir Energy, the operator of the Fortuna project with 80% interest.

Ophir is planning a large FLNG installation and associated subsea structures. With the surveys beginning in November, the offshore operations are scheduled for completion in January 2016, Fugro said on Friday.

Under the contract Fugro will deploy three of its vessels – Fugro Searcher, Fugro Scout and Fugro Frontier – to perform autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) surveys as well as geotechnical, environmental and metocean surveys.

The Fortuna FLNG development will be Africa’s first deepwater independent FLNG project, as stated by Ophir. The project entered FEED in July 2015 and FID is expected in mid-2016 with the first gas forecast for mid-2019. The field is expected to produce 2.2mtpa.
