Fugro wins contract for metocean study AustraliaThe Australian office of Fugro GEOS has been awarded a contract by Woodside Energy Ltd to undertake a year-long metocean study along the proposed pipeline route for the Browse LNG Development which will run from the gas fields to the planned Kimberley LNG Precinct at James Price Point, about 60 km north of Broome in Western Australia.

The contract covers an onshore meteorological measurement and a nearshore and offshore metocean measurement programme. A 30m meteorological tower will be installed onshore to measure meteorological parameters and air quality in order to establish onsite baselines. Data from all the sensors on the tower will be transmitted by Iridium links and uploaded to a secure website for retrieval by the client.
