OilNOW
OilNow is an online-based Information and Resource Centre which serves to complement the work of all stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in Guyana.

Fugro is to boost its marine site characterization services for the oil and gas industry in the Republic of Guyana with a new strategic alliance with Ground Structures Engineering Consultants Ltd. The new relationship will facilitate training for Guyanese citizens and support local economic development.

Officials from the Ministry of Natural Resources, Maritime Administration Dept. and the EPA toured the Fugro Explorer. This vessel is conducting the Deep Geotechnical Phase II survey to support the Liza Phase I Development project.

The professionals employed by Ground Structures are experienced in conventional geotechnical engineering and their services include site reconnaissance and geologic mapping, subsurface exploration, data analysis and engineering design, specification review and on-site monitoring. Principal consulting fields include environmental management, geotechnical engineering and groundwater hydrology and the company’s expertise is complemented by a full-service soil laboratory.

By working with agencies in the Republic of Guyana, Fugro fulfils its commitment to support local economic development and, through relationships with local companies such as Ground Structures, facilitates training and maximises job opportunities for Guyanese citizens. As part of this new working relationship, Fugro will provide onsite training at its state-of-the-art accredited laboratory in Houston, Texas, USA to cross-train soil technicians to meet industry standards.

Fugro will also provide essential offshore experience to Ground Structures’ certified soil technicians who will support a geotechnical campaign recently awarded to Fugro by Esso Exploration and Production, Guyana Limited. The marine site characterisation project is scheduled to begin in April 2017 and the Ground Structures technicians will work alongside Fugro personnel onboard its deepwater geotechnical vessel, Fugro Explorer.
