Fugro to Undertake Seeps Survey Off Kenya

Fugro has been awarded a contract by Shell/BG Kenya for the execution of a seabed survey to detect natural leakages of hydrocarbons.

Fugro will mobilize its specialized survey vessel, Fugro Discovery, to Kenya in March to undertake a four-week campaign of multibeam data acquisition and sampling.

Seabed sampling will be carried out using a drop corer and multibeam data will be acquired with a multibeam echo sounder.

Peter Boon, regional business development manager for Fugro in Africa said, “Seeps surveys are an important part of Fugro’s site characterization services and we’re very pleased to reintroduce the Fugro Discovery to African waters, where she will demonstrate the excellent value they represent when exploration budgets are limited. These important seabed surveys support the decision making process for drilling operations, especially in frontier regions like East Africa.”
