Fugro supports Total ultra-deepwater drilling campaign with ROV services

Oilfield Technology,

The contract provides for ROV and tooling services in the Raya-1 field in 3400 m water depth. Fugro is supplying two state-of-the-art 200 hp 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 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. Realtime video provided by Fugro and Total telecom network enables Total to observe critical operations from its onshore office should it be needed.

Raya-1 is the deepest well, by water depth, ever to be drilled. “Fugro’s top class intervention tooling is key to supporting Total in this world leading contract,” said Richard Mathieson, Fugro ROV Services Project Manager.
