Fugro has secured a contract from Dana Petroleum to supply ROV drilling support services on board the Ocean Guardian MODU.
Using one of its FCV 600 ROVs, Fugro will carry out drilling and completions projects at the Dana-operated Western Isles development in the northern North Sea.
The scope of work covers standard drilling support, which begins this month, and intervention tooling support, with all ROV tooling designed and supplied by Fugro.
“This award from Dana Petroleum strengthens Fugro’s North Sea drill support business in the current challenging market,” said Mark Ward, Drill Support and ROV Project Manager at Fugro Subsea Services Limited. “It also recognises our objective to minimise operational costs without impacting on efficiency or safety standards. We are looking forward to assisting Dana Petroleum in meeting its targets.”
