Fugro completes first phase of site investigation at Qatargas North Field

Fugro Proteus

Fugro has completed the first phase of its multi-disciplinary offshore site investigation for Qatargas’ North Field Production Sustainability’s Compression Phase.

The fieldwork started in March 2020 and, while phase one marks completion of the geophysical scope, the geotechnical scope in phase two will run as planned until August this year.

The fieldwork is being performed by in-country project teams from Fugro’s dedicated vessels Fugro Proteus (pictured) and Fugro Adventurer and includes cone penetration testing and P-S logging results.

The final deliverables – comprising a bathymetric and geophysical survey and a geotechnical appraisal of the soils encountered – will be used to optimise jacket platform pile foundation design, and pipeline and cable-route engineering, in Qatar’s North Field.

The North Field is the largest non-associated gas field in the world and is located 80 nautical miles off the north coast of Qatar.
