Fugro has deployed multi-purpose offshore vessel the Fugro Gauss to join one of its other vessels in Mexico as it completes the world’s largest seep-hunting survey for TGS.

The company said both vessels are using hull-mounted multibeam echosounders and sub-bottom profiler systems to map an area of 625,000 square kilometres in the deep waters of Mexico.

The data acquired will assist in identifying sites where deep hydrocarbon-rich fluids are escaping to the seafloor.

Jim Gharib, Fugro’s global product line manager for seep studies, said: “Fugro has a dedicated centre of excellence in Houston for seep-hunting.

“The team includes several of the world’s leading geoscience experts responsible for bringing seep-hunting to the offshore industry.

“Our recent successes include nine seep data collection and geochemical analysis projects in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and Southeast Asia.”

The survey is being conducted for TGS as part of its industry-funded “Gigante Survey” which also includes a regional 2D seismic survey of 186,000 kilometres.

The survey is also designed to assist exploration and production companies in their evaluation of prospectivity offshore Mexico during forthcoming licence rounds.
