Fugro will carry out multibeam bathymetric, shallow seismic profiling, magnetometry and 2D UHR.

The work also includes rig positioning, current profile measurements and wellhead searches.

For the purpose of the surveys Fugro has mobilised its vessel the Fugro Mapper.

The vessel and Fugro survey team will perform the operations in water depths of up to 100 metres.

Finally, geo-data survey results will provide ONGC with the seabed and sub-seabed insights needed to develop key offshore infrastructure.

Remmelt de Jong, Fugro’s director for Marine Site Characterisation in the Middle East and India, said:

“Being awarded this multi-year contract for the fourth consecutive time demonstrates the value Fugro has brought to Indian offshore development and our clients.

“We are especially proud of the strong relationship we have forged with ONGC and we intend to maintain the exemplary health and safety record we achieved in the three previous contracts, with no major downtime or zero lost time incidents over the last 9 years.”
