Aker Energy has awarded Fugro a contract for geotechnical and geophysical survey services in relation to the Pecan field offshore Ghana.

The surveys will obtain critical seabed and sub-seabed information to facilitate the planning and emplacement of the Pecan subsea infrastructure and the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) ship.

The contract includes surveys performed from two vessels for a 10-week period starting in March as well as subsequent laboratory testing.\

Geophysical survey data will be acquired using Fugro Searcher (pictured) and one of Fugro’s deepwater AUVs, Echo Surveyor VI. The geotechnical vessel Fugro Scout, specifically designed for geotechnical operations in water depths of up to 3,000 metres, will then follow to provide drilling, seabed sampling, and in situ testing.
