Fugro awarded Gassco and Statoil contract

Statoil Petroleum AS and Gassco AS have awarded the 2015 annual pipeline inspection contract to Fugro. 

The contract covers inspection of defined sections of subsea pipelines between Norway and continental Europe: Europipe 1, Europipe 2, Franpipe, Zeepipe and Norpipe. Inspection of pipeline sections for production fields in Norwegian waters is also included in the scope of work.

Fugro will utilise its Echo Surveyor Hugin 1000 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) equipped with EM2040 multi-beam echosounder and EdgeTech Full Spectrum 120 and 410 kHz side scan sonar. The AUV will be deployed from Fugro’s multi-purpose survey vessel Geo Prospector.

The inspection survey is scheduled to commence in May 2015 and the confirmed workscope has an estimated duration of 30 days.
