Geochemical Campaign offshore Honduras - 03/08/2015


Fugro has been awarded a contract by BG International Limited Sucursal Honduras to conduct an integrated multibeam echosounder (MBES) survey and seabed coring campaign over its offshore acreage (block) in the Honduran Caribbean. As part of BG’s exploration licence commitments, the campaign will map the seafloor to interpret, identify, sample and analyse potential hydrocarbon seeps.

Fugro’s 65-metre survey vessel, MV Fugro Brasilis, commenced the two-month mapping and interpretation portion in July 2015.

The MBES and seabed coring programme will cover an area of the Patuca Basin in excess of 10,000 km2 in the northern part of the block. Features of interest will be identified and evaluated during the MBES survey to generate a final set of locations to target for precision geochemical sampling. The coring phase will follow to collect approximately 200 seabed cores and 15 heat flow measurements.
