Fugro has been awarded a combined geophysical and geotechnical project by Hess Exploration Australia Pty Ltd (Hess) to assist in Hess’ activities in the Northern Carnarvon Basin offshore NW Australia. Fugro’s work will include seabed and shallow geological investigations including in areas of difficult terrain.   For the first phase of the survey Fugro will utilise one of its industry leading Hugin 1000 AUVs (autonomous underwater vehicles) to map the seabed. The data will be used to optimise planning for the subsequent sediment sampling phase where a variety of techniques will be used. Fugro’s geoconsultancy team will also deliver an integrated data model for input to Hess’ ongoing analysis.   The project is planned to take place in the first quarter of 2016.   ABOUT FUGRO Fugro creates value by acquiring and interpreting earth and engineering data and providing associated consulting services to support clients with their design and construction of infrastructure and buildings.
