Fugro was recently contracted by oil and gas exploration and development company Perenco to provide detailed topographic mapping of a proposed oil pipeline route in northern Peru. Airborne data acquisition for this critical project was completed using Fugro’s airborne GeoSAR radar mapping system. Delivered products will support geological interpretation, slope analysis, wetlands delineation, and pipeline routing.
In selecting Fugro for the project, Perenco cited the company’s ability to meet an aggressive delivery schedule using GeoSAR. The GeoSAR system is unique in its ability to collect dual-band interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IFSAR) data through clouds and foliage for detailed terrain mapping in equatorial regions.
