Neptune Energy has awarded a subsea inspection contract to geo-data specialist, Fugro, for the surveying of subsea structures at the Cygnus gas field in the UK’s southern North Sea.

Fugro’s will use state-of-the-art remote monitoring technology to inspect subsea infrastructure including pipelines and umbilicals, spools and communication cables, and perform structural surveys of the Neptune-operated Cygnus gas platform jackets.

ROVs will be deployed from the Edda Sun vessel to carry out the inspection work.
