Fugro supports Qatargas’ offshore operations with inspection services contract

Published by

Utilising its purpose-built survey vessel Fugro Proteus, Fugro will undertake geophysical and environmental services and ROV (remotely operated vehicle) inspection of Qatargas’ subsea assets. The geotechnical soil investigation studies will be carried out from dedicated vessel Fugro Adventurer.

Established in 1984, Qatargas operates 14 LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) trains at offshore fields located approximately 80 km northeast of Qatar's mainland. Total annual production capacity is 77 million t.

Mike Dravitzki, Fugro’s Regional Director, explained how, after 45 years of operations in the Middle East, the company is expanding further to support Qatar’s development plans. “We have new workshop facilities in Qatar where we have permanent storage for our geophysical, ROV and diving supplies as well as a full range of positioning equipment, for rapid deployment. In the prominent district of West Bay, Doha, our new offices house dedicated project management and other support services, which will be boosted soon by data processing services. These additional facilities in Qatar enhance our established, integrated service offerings for marine site characterisation and asset integrity.”
