As part of the contract, Fugro will employ its specialised survey technology to inspect the subsea infrastructure, including pipelines and structures, and to undertake survey activities in advance of future drilling campaigns on the Cygnus field.
Traditionally, data processing would be carried out by a team offshore; however, this will be carried out from Fugro’s Remote Operations Centre (ROC) in Aberdeen, reducing costs and time associated with offshore travel.
Neptune’s Managing Director for the UK, Alexandra Thomas, said: “It’s crucially important to ensure the integrity and maintenance of subsea infrastructure and we are pleased to be awarding this contract to Fugro to help us achieve the highest standards of inspection.
“By deploying Fugro’s innovative digital technologies, we can support safe, efficient and reliable operations remotely.”
Daniel Jones, Fugro’s Director IRM Services for Europe and Africa, said: “Fugro is delighted to again be working with Neptune Energy in support of their subsea integrity management.
“By using our ROC in Aberdeen, we can complete these scopes from onshore while maintaining our high standards of data collection.”
