Fugro Tapped for Two Metocean Studies Offshore East Africa



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.
