Fugro Bags New Trenching Contracts in North Sea

Q1400 trencher

Fugro has secured three contracts for its Q1400 trenching systems to be deployed in the North Sea over the next 12 months for oil and gas clients.

At the Wintershall-owned Maria development in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, Fugro will deploy the Q1400 trenching system under a contract with Subsea 7.

At Det norske’s Ivar Aasen development, the system will be deployed for EMAS CHIYODA Subsea in June.

For both projects the trencher will operate in jetting mode for burial of pipelines, power cables and umbilicals, the company informed.

In the UK sector, a contract with Bibby Offshore will see Fugro’s Q1400 trencher operating in both jetting and cutting modes to bury a new umbilical at the BP ETAP redevelopment.

“Since launching the Q1400 system in 2012, Fugro has successfully completed numerous trenching projects at oil and gas developments and more recently at offshore wind developments. We are looking forward to continuing to demonstrate how our trenching capabilities can bring benefits to clients in both sectors,” said Mike Daniel, construction and installation manager at Fugro Subsea Services.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
