Shell hires Fugro for seabed survey off Kenya

Fugro has been awarded a contract by Shell/BG Kenya for the execution of a seabed survey to detect natural leakages of hydrocarbons.

The seeps survey complements a seismic exploration program that was completed recently offshore Kenya, Fugro said on Tuesday.

Undertaking a four-week campaign of multibeam data acquisition and precise sampling, Fugro will mobilize its specialised survey vessel, Fugro Discovery, to Kenya in March. According to the company, seabed sampling will be carried out using a drop corer and multibeam data will be acquired with the latest deepwater high resolution multibeam echo sounder, installed in a newly designed gondola on the vessel hull.

Fugro noted that the project is one of many seeps campaigns completed in the world’s oceans for Shell by Fugro.

Peter Boon, Regional Business Development Manager for Fugro in Africa comments, “Seeps surveys are an important part of Fugro’s site characterization services and we’re very pleased to reintroduce the Fugro Discovery to African waters, where she will demonstrate the excellent value they represent when exploration budgets are limited. These important seabed surveys support the decision making process for drilling operations, especially in frontier regions like East Africa.”
