Dutch seismic services company Fugro has been awarded a contract by Guangzhou Marine Geological Survey (GMGS) for a gas hydrate investigation on the Northern Continental Slope of the South China Sea.

The contract is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2018 and is valued at around $40m. It is Fugro’s fifth gas hydrate contract with GMGS

Jerry Paisley, Director for Marine Site Characterisation for Fugro in the Asia Pacific Region, commented: “We are pleased to be re-appointed to execute further exploration work in the South China Sea and to continue our long-standing relationship with GMGS.
