Two metocean contracts off the coast of East Africa, both with significance for the oil and gas industry, have been awarded to Fugro.

The first contract involves a one-year current measurement project with moorings in up to 1,700m water-depth off the Tanzania coast for Ophir Energy, the oil and gas exploration and production company established in 2004 with a focus upon Africa. The second contract is a joint industry metocean study of the Tanzania and Mozambique coast (TAMOMS) for StatoilHydro, Dominion Tanzania Ltd, Petrobras, Petronas and Anadarko. This contract, which is also for a year, is for a current and wave study involving six current and two wave and metrological moorings in water depths ranging from 1,100 -3,000m.

The combined contracts are the largest award to Fugro GEOS in this region and will provide much needed environmental data for planning and design.
