Dutch Fugro is providing Qatargas, the world’s largest LNG producer, with underwater inspection, geotechnical and geophysical services for its offshore operations in Qatar under a new 5-year call off contract.
Utilising its purpose-built survey vessel Fugro Proteus, Fugro will undertake geophysical and environmental services and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) inspection of Qatargas’ subsea assets, the company said in a statement on Thursday.
The geotechnical soil investigation studies will be carried out from dedicated vessel Fugro Adventurer.
Qatargas operates 14 LNG trains located in Ras Laffan with a total annual production capacity of 77 million tonnes.
The trains are fed with gas from offshore fields located approximately 80 kilometres northeast of Qatar’s mainland.
