Hess Hires Fugro for Survey Work Off Australia

Fugro has been awarded a combined geophysical and geotechnical project by Hess Exploration Australia to assist in Hess’ activities in the Northern Carnarvon Basin offshore NW Australia.

Fugro’s work will include seabed and shallow geological investigations including areas of difficult terrain.

For the first phase of the survey Fugro will utilise Hugin 1000 AUV (autonomous underwater vehicles) to map the seabed.

The data will be used to optimise planning for the subsequent sediment sampling phase where a variety of techniques will be used. Fugro’s geoconsultancy team will also deliver an integrated data model for input to Hess’ ongoing analysis, the company said.

The project is planned to take place in the first quarter of 2016.
