Fugro to provide ROV services for Total’s drilling campaign off Uruguay
- Business & Finance
Fugro has been awarded a contract by Total E&P Uruguay B.V. to support its drilling campaign offshore Uruguay.
The contract provides for ROV and tooling services in the Raya-1 field in 3,400 meters water depth.
Fugro is supplying two 200hp FCV 4000D work-class ROV systems and subsea tooling, which are installed on board the Maersk Venturer drilling ship, and a field support vessel.
In addition to specialist tooling tasks, Fugro added it is performing a range of activities typically required during drilling operations such as bullseye checks, seabed survey, and general cleaning on and around the subsea BOP.
Real-time video provided by Fugro and Total telecom network enables Total to observe critical operations from its onshore office should it be needed, the company said.
According to Fugro, Raya-1 is the deepest well, by water depth, ever to be drilled.
