Fugro has been awarded a geotechnical contract for Apsara oil field in Block A, offshore Cambodia, as part of the Southeast Asian nation’s first hydrocarbon development.

Fugro will carry out a geotechnical investigation for Singapore-based KrisEnergy to support the design and installation phases of the Apsara Mini Phase 1A development. The work will be performed using the drillship Fugro Mariner and will comprise shallow gas pilot-hole drilling and geotechnical sample boreholes and cone penetration tests.

The Apsara field lies over the Khmer Basin, an unproduced geological basin in Cambodian maritime waters in the Gulf of Thailand.
