Posted on December 26, 2018 17:02

Pre-lay survey of F18 and FX platform corridors for completed successfully for laying two sets of composite cables between FX and F18 platforms.


The geophysical route surveys have been performed to cover a corridor of 1000 m centered on the proposed cable route with 600 m extended at each side of platforms. Obtaining Accurate Water Depth, establishing actual seabed condition along and adjacent of the proposed cable routes, Longitudinal profile along the proposed route, Seabed topography, features, obstruction and hazards and etc. were some objectives of this survey.


Following equipment were used on Survey Vessel for successful and accurate data’s:

  • Multi-beam echo sounder system.
  • Dual frequency single beam echo sounder.
  • Dual frequency side scans sonar.
  • Magnetometer


The NEW FOROOZAN F18 wellhead platform project foresees the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation & Start-up of F18 Wellhead Platform in 2.5 Km distance of existing FOROOZAN FX Platform. The two Platforms are connected to each other with three infield pipelines & two submarine composite cables.
