Fugro Chance Enters Offshore Trawl Survey Market

Fugro Chance Inc. has recently entered the "trawl survey" market. Trawling with specialized equipment is one method approved by the MMS to insure that offshore worksites are clear of debris once oil and gas operations have ceased at the site. While conducting hundreds of successful trawl surveys, this is the first time that Fugro Chance has taken the lead as prime contractor. The project was conducted in the Gulf of Mexico utilizing Fugro's STARFIXĂ’ positioning system and additional proprietary navigation tools.

Fugro Chance has offered precision surveying services since 1957 and is part of the international Fugro group of companies with 250 offices in 60 countries.
