Fugro Awarded Seeps Survey Offshore Kenya
Fugro has been awarded a contract by Shell/BG Kenya for the execution of a seabed survey to detect natural leakages of hydrocarbons. The seeps survey complements a seismic exploration program that was completed recently offshore Kenya.
Undertaking a four-week campaign of multibeam data acquisition and precise sampling, Fugro will mobilize its specialized survey vessel, Fugro Discovery, to Kenya in March. Seabed sampling will be carried out using a drop corer and multibeam data will be acquired with the latest deepwater high resolution multibeam echo sounder, installed in a newly designed gondola on the vessel hull.
The project is one of many seeps campaigns completed in the world’s oceans for Shell by Fugro and demonstrates the added value of consistent execution of site works and standardised deliverables. Managed under a joint Fugro-Shell Safety Leadership program, the project optimizes both companies’ expertise in efficient and safe delivery.
