Bay of Campeche

Fugro has secured an extension of the ongoing offshore geophysical and geotechnical campaign by Mexican national oil company, Pemex.

According to Fugro, geotechnical field operations, laboratory testing and geoconsulting activities will support exploration drilling activities in the Bay of Campeche.

The operations are also expected to support activities at deepwater locations in the Perdido area.

The contract extension is valued at around $13m, and was received in partnership with the company’s long-time associate Diavaz.

Under the contract, Fugro plans to begin the field programme in October from ultra-deepwater geotechnical and well services vessel Fugro Synergy.

The geoconsulting programme is expected to continue through next year.

The southern bight of bodies of water of the Gulf of Mexico, the Bay of Campeche is surrounded on three sides by Mexican states Campeche, Tabasco and Veracruz.

The bay is spread over in an area of 16,000km² and its maximum depth is about 180ft.

Fugro’s geotechnical information will be used to design foundations for deepwater wells, offshore structures, on and offshore pipelines, ports, large buildings, bridges, and other infrastructure.
