Saipem selects Fugro’s InclinoCam® vision technology for GTA FLNG project offshore Senegal and Mauritania

Fugro has been awarded a monitoring contract by Saipem that will see it deploying its InclinoCam® vision technology for the Greater Tortue-Ahmeyim gas project offshore Senegal and Mauritania. The project involves the development of 15 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of gas discovered on the maritime border between Senegal and Mauritania via a 2.45 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) floating LNG (FLNG) unit in Phase 1 where first gas is expected in Q3 2023.

Fugro will start executing its contract with Saipem from December this year and will install more than 190 piles over 6 months from a jack-up barge. “Fugro’s rapid precise positioning will provide actionable Geo-data on the monopile inclination to accelerate the project schedule and a touchless solution that is much safer than conventional monitoring,” the company said in a statement today.

Full details on the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) LNG project are available in the “Projects” section within your Hawilti+ research terminal.
