Fugro Targets Reduced Carbon Footprint with Remote Technologies

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/2/2022, Location: North America

Fugro is building a remote operations centre (ROC) in the companyís St. Johnís office, located in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

The ultra-modern communications hub is scheduled for completion in Q4 2022 and will complement Fugroís global network of ROCs, which make it possible to complete offshore operations onshore via remote and autonomous technologies. For Fugroís clients in eastern Canada, this will mean safer, more efficient and more sustainable delivery of marine Geo-data and related services.

The St. Johnís ROC is being funded in part by the Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Oil and Gas Industry Recovery Assistance Fund, a programme of the provincial and federal governments. It was selected for funding based on the ROCís local employment opportunities, environmental benefits and support to existing oil and gas installations. In addition to building the onshore communications hub, Fugro will upgrade their equipment on selected offshore client assets to facilitate remote services. Fugro will also offer their remote and autonomous services to non-oil and gas clients both locally and abroad, while expanding a diverse and inclusive local employment pool.

Pat Byrne, Fugroís Marine Asset Integrity Manager in Canada stated: ďWe are thrilled to have the governmentís support on building an ROC in our St. Johnís office and we are proud to help lead the regionís digital transformation, accelerating and enhancing the application of remote operations in the region to reduce the carbon footprint of energy development. Fugro has been moving in this direction for some time and we have seen tangible and significant benefits from our advances in digital technology worldwide.Ē
