Fugro starts surveying Hail and Ghasha fields in UAE

Netherlands-based company Fugro has started conducting geophysical and geotechnical surveys for Artelia, as a part of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s (ADNOC) Hail and Ghasha gas development. 

Netherlands-based company Fugro has started conducting geophysical and geotechnical surveys for Artelia, as a part of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s (ADNOC) Hail and Ghasha gas development.

Situated off the Arabian Gulf, the Hail and Ghasha gas development form an important part to ensure sustainable and economic gas supply to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Survey contracts were awarded to Fugro through a competitive bidding process.

Fugro has already mobilised specialised equipment to the Ghasha field such as self-elevating platforms for geotechnical work and crew accommodation.

At Hail field, the company will deploy amphibious buggies to conduct surveys. The field is situated in an inter-tidal shoal area.

The marine geophysical and bathymetric surveys in the deeper water will be carried out by its Fugro Proteus vessel.

“The geotechnical workscope includes boreholes, grab samples, vibrocores, cone penetration tests, pressure metres, and downhole seismic.”

Fugro project delivery manager Chris Arnott said: “We’re meeting the requirements of this key project with our expertise in both geotechnical site investigation and marine survey.

“The geotechnical workscope includes boreholes, grab samples, vibrocores, cone penetration tests, pressure metres, and downhole seismic.”

The survey activities include the delivery of bathymetric, multibeam echo sounder, tide gauges, ultra-high-resolution seismic sub-bottom profiling, magnetometer and side scan sonar.

Fugro UAE country manager Louis Burnard said: “Our involvement in this strategic project for the United Arab Emirates further strengthens Fugro’s relationship with ADNOC.

“It follows more than 30 years of collaboration across all of the company’s subsidiary operating companies in Abu Dhabi.”
