Fugro Survey Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract for the survey for the development of the Ichthys Gas Field.

Fugro Survey Pty Ltd of Perth has been awarded a contract to provide Geophysical Survey Services for the Ichthys Gas Condensate Field and associated facilities on behalf of Inpex Browse Ltd.

The Ichthys Field is located approximately 250km from the northwest coast of Australia in the Browse Basin. The Ichthys gas-condensate field has the potential to be a major offshore Australian project, and INPEX is now working towards the commercialization of this large resource.

Key elements of the survey cover offshore facilities; subsea pipeline, to transport hydrocarbons from the offshore facilities to an onshore location; and loading and handling facilities

Work will include a full geophysical spread consisting of state of the art digital acquisition using Fugro proprietary acquisition and processing systems.

Fugro's capability of providing one-stop shop services was crucial in being able to satisfy the client's requirements with a cost-effective solution.
