Fugro Completes Phase 1 Qatargas North Field Survey
Dutch geo-intelligence and asset integrity solutions provider Fugro has completed the first phase of their offshore site investigation for Qatargas’ North Field production sustainability’s compression phase, it said on July 21 in a statement.
The fieldwork started in March and, while phase one marks completion of the geophysical scope, the geotechnical scope in phase two will run as planned until August this year, the company said. The fieldwork is being performed by in-country project teams from Fugro’s dedicated vessels Proteus and Adventurer and includes cone penetration testing and P-S logging results.
The final deliverables – comprising a bathymetric and geophysical survey and a geotechnical appraisal of the soils encountered – will be used to optimise jacket platform pile foundation design, and pipeline and cable-route engineering, in Qatar’s North Field.
The North Field is the largest non-associated gas field in the world and is located 80 nautical miles off the north coast of Qatar.
