Fugro Sees IRM Boost

Fugro said it has attracted seven new clients for its IRM services in the UK North Sea.

Recent work includes pipeline and structure inspections for Centrica Storage, Chrysaor, Dana, Petrofac, Premier, Repsol and Spirit Energy.

Workscopes also include light repair and maintenance and decommissioning, utilising Fugro’s vessels and in-house environmental, geotechnical and geophysical expertise.

Karl Daly, Fugro’s European IRM service line director, said: “In this competitive market, we are extremely pleased that our experienced IRM team, efficient vessels, in-house ROVs and AUVs and bespoke tooling have helped Fugro to secure these contracts. These all enable us to optimise schedules and reporting to clients, and to reduce project time, costs and risks.”

He added that Fugro’s commercial and technical proposals are underpinned by the company’s ability to demonstrate outstanding IRM service efficiencies and highlighted a notable 30-day inspection campaign. “This recent inspection project was not only completed within schedule and under budget, but it also achieved 100% vessel up-time and delivered huge cost savings on repairs,” he explained. “By rapidly designing, simulating and integrating a unique ROV-deployable caisson centraliser repair tool, we avoided the need for an expensive dive support vessel, saving our client over £1 million.”

This year’s additional contracts join the long-standing ROVSV framework agreements and regular inspection work Fugro carries out for four other UK North Sea operators. The company also performs annual platform asset-based ROV inspections for six clients in the UK and regular North Sea ROVSV pipeline inspections for operators in the Irish, Danish, Dutch and Norwegian continental shelves.

Elsewhere in Europe this year, Fugro has also completed several major trunk line pipeline inspection projects.
