This prestigious contract for the Gorgon Project off Western Australia's North West Shelf will be amongst the largest geophysical and geotechnical surveys ever under taken in Australia and is scheduled to begin in March 2005 with a 5 month project duration.
The Gorgon Survey Services will utilize a number of specialist vessels. Mobilized onto the MV Southern Supporter, a 75m dedicated survey /research vessel, the investigation will commence with pipeline route corridor reconnaissance surveys in water depths between 20-1350m to acquire sufficient geophysical and geotechnical data from proposed pipeline routes to identify feasible route corridor's for detailed pipe route planning.
The next phase of the project which will see utilize Fugro's high resolution Deeptow-2 geophysical system to obtain sufficient detailed geophysical data for the final routing and design of an export pipeline from water depths of 1350 meters over the scarp to Barrow Island. Fugro Survey will also be using the D.P Geotechnical Drilling Vessel S.R.V Bavenit to collect detailed design level geotechnical engineering information at the proposed Gorgon subsea structure locations and along the proposed pipeline routes.
