Inpex Masela, a subsidiary of Inpex Corporation, has awarded Fugro a marine survey contract for the Abadi LNG project in Indonesia.

Fugro will perform geophysical and geotechnical surveys and the associated studies needed to support front-end engineering design (FEED) for offshore production facilities and the submarine pipeline to the onshore LNG terminal.
Geo-data will be acquired using Fugro’s deepwater autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) Echo Surveyor and the robotic seafloor drill Seafloor Drill 2 deployed from Indonesian support vessels.

The Abadi LNG project is based on an onshore LNG development scheme that Inpex as the operator is preparing for development in partnership with Shell in Masela block, offshore Indonesia. The project will produce a total output of natural gas (LNG equivalent) of 10.5 million tonnes per year and up to approximately 35,000 barrels of condensate per day.
