Fugro said it aims to boost its marine site characterisation services for the oil and gas industry in the Republic of Guyana with a new strategic alliance with Ground Structures Engineering Consultants.
The new relationship should facilitate training for Guyanese citizens and support local economic development.
As part of this new working relationship, Fugro will provide onsite training at its laboratory in Houston, Texas, USA to cross-train soil technicians to meet industry standards.
Fugro will also provide offshore experience to Ground Structures’ certified soil technicians who will support a geotechnical campaign recently awarded to Fugro by Esso Exploration and Production, Guyana.
The marine site characterisation project is scheduled to begin in April 2017 and the Ground Structures technicians will work alongside Fugro personnel onboard its deepwater geotechnical vessel, Fugro Explorer.
