Fugro to support Technip on deepwater Kaombo installations

Offshore staff

LUANDA, Angola – Technip has contracted Fugro to provide deepwater survey and positioning services for the Total-operated Kaombo oil field development offshore Angola.

The contract involves support for seven installation and construction support vessels, with complex simultaneous operations. The contract begins in the second half of 2016 and is scheduled to continue until early 2018.

According to Fugro, Kaombo presents significant geological and technical challenges. The workscope includes pre-lay and as-built surveys and application of high-accuracy subsea positioning and metrologies, using what is claimed to be the largest subsea transponder array ever deployed.

The Kaombo development is in block 32, 260 km (161 mi) offshore Luanda in water depths ranging from 1,400-2,000 m (4,593-6,562 ft). It takes in six fields that will be tied back to two converted FPSOs.
