NEPTUNE Energy has awarded a subsea inspection contract to Fugro at its Cygnus gas field.

Fugro will deploy state-of-the-art technology and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) from the Edda Sun vessel to carry out the work at the Southern North Sea site.

Fugro’s scope of work includes inspection of subsea infrastructure including pipelines and umbilicals, spools and communication cables, and standard structural surveys of the gas platform jackets.

Meanwhile data processors will review the information from Fugro’s new Remote Operations Centre (ROC) in Aberdeen, more than 600 miles away.

The ROC will use new digital technology to interpret the data and feed it through to Neptune Energy in real time.

This speeds up the process while reducing the number of team members physically present on the Edda Sun vessel, supporting the need to socially distance due to COVID-19.

Mungo McLeish, Neptune’s director of operations for the UK, said: “Across our geographically-diverse portfolio, we’re using digital technologies to enhance the safety and efficiency of our operations.

“Fugro’s use of their ROC is a strong example of the benefits to both operators and service partners of employing such technologies.

“Through remote monitoring, the team will have access to all available data and will reduce the logistical challenges of managing personnel on the vessel offshore.”

Karl Daly, Fugro’s director for Inspection Repair and Maintenance (IRM) services in Europe, said: “We’re delighted to continue our working relationship with Neptune.

“Fugro has worked at Cygnus for the past five years and will be utilising our ROC to provide high quality survey and inspection services, while reducing the number of personnel required offshore.”
