Fugro has successfully completed the first deepwater autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) site survey for Brunei Shell Petroleum Company (BSP).

Ceri Powell, BSP’s Managing Director, delivered a congratulatory note acknowledging the quality of Fugro’s work and HSSE leadership shown throughout the campaign. BSP’s Project Lead Bilman Pardomuan Hutabarat commented: 'This campaign was the first deepwater survey project for Shell in Brunei and its success will lead to many more deepwater programmes.'

The survey was performed in August in water depths of 600 m using the Fugro Equator, a dedicated geophysical survey vessel, and the Fugro ES-V AUV, and completed with zero HSSE incidents. The survey results will be critical for planning a safe drilling programme, and will provide key inputs for engineering and design studies for pipeline routing and subsea structures in future deepwater field developments.

Following the successful site survey, BSP subsequently awarded Fugro the associated geotechnical site investigation and geoconsultancy contract. The project included a review of the geophysical data and desktop study to assist BSP in defining their geotechnical scope of work. Fugro Voyager, a dedicated deepwater geotechnical drilling vessel, completed the fieldwork in October 2019, also with zero HSSE incidents.

'We are pleased to provide our deepwater site characterisation capability to another deepwater field development in the APAC region. BSP has been our client for more than 40 years and part of that success is owed to our unique ‘Triple A’ approach, where we acquire, analyse and advise on Geo-data across the full project life cycle,' remarked Jerry Paisley, Business Line Director, Asia Pacific Region.
