Perenco Taps Fugro to Map Oil Pipeline Corridor in Peru

Fugro has received a contract award from the oil and gas exploration and development company Perenco to provide detailed topographic mapping of a proposed oil pipeline route in northern Peru. Fugro's airborne GeoSAR radar mapping system is used for the airborne data acquisition for this critical project. Delivered products will support geological interpretation, slope analysis, wetlands delineation, and pipeline routing.

In selecting Fugro for the project, Perenco cited the company's ability to meet an aggressive delivery schedule using GeoSAR. The GeoSAR system is unique in its ability to collect dual-band interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IFSAR) data through clouds and foliage for detailed terrain mapping. For this reason, GeoSAR is particularly suited for mapping regions in the Tropics and at higher latitudes.
