Dutch global geological survey firm Fugro has secured an inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) contract from Seamec to support the latter’s asset management project for state-owned Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) off the west coast of India.

Under the three-year contract, Fugro will provide Seamec with remotely operated vehicle (ROV) services from mid-June.

The contract also has an option of a two-year extension.

The work scope of the contract involves IRM of ONGC Mumbai’s processing and wellhead platforms, subsea pipelines, risers, pipeline end manifolds, as well as single-buoy and single-point moorings.

Fugro’s ROV services will support activities such as marine growth removal and cathodic protection. These activities also include providing thickness measurements of jacket structures and subsea pipelines.

The Dutch firm’s ROV is equipped with specialist tooling operable by local personnel in water depths ranging from 10m-150m.

Seamec Commercial Operations president Naveen Mohta said: “Fugro has been our trusted partner for a long time and we are confident that they will deliver on this contract with the expertise and reliability that we have come to expect.”

Over the past eight years, Fugro has been providing Seamec with IRM and construction support solutions.

In April, Fugro secured a contract to support subsea well decommissioning performed by the semi-submersible Well-Safe Guardian.

In March, the company announced a partnership with technology company Sea-Kit International to develop drone ships for inspection vessel deployment.
