Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Fugro’s Seafloor Drill 2 has completed a multi-site investigation across the North West Shelf of Australia, designed to support a jackup drilling campaign.

The program, in water depths up to 112 m (367 ft), involved in situ testing and sampling to a total length of 323 m (1,060 ft). Fugro says the seabed sediments are among the most problematic in the world for rigs, ranging from ultra-soft carbonate muds to highly weathered limestone.

The contractor deployed its proprietary wireline system for the campaign.
