PEMEX extends geo contracts with Fugro

Offshore staff

LEIDSCHENDAM, the Netherlands – PEMEX has awarded Fugro (Mexico) and its associates, Diavaz, an extension of the company’s ongoing offshore geophysical and geotechnical campaign in a deal worth about $13 million.

Geotechnical field operations, laboratory testing, and geoconsulting activities will support exploration drilling activities in the Bay of Campeche and deepwater locations in the Perdido area. The field program is planned to start in October 2015, from the ultra-deepwater geotechnical and well services vessel Fugro Synergy, while the geoconsultancy program will continue through 2016.

The 2009-build Fugro Synergy is a purpose-designed and built geotechnical drilling and well intervention vessel. The drillship can complement MODU-based operations or, in certain circumstances, remove those activities from the critical path all together, Fugro said. It has the capability to drill 2,500 m (8,202 ft) below the seabed from the mudline, and can also install and construct sections of subsea wells and infrastructure.
