    InterMoor Inc., along with Murphy Sabah Oil Co. and Petronas Carigali, has installed the world’s deepest conventional mooring system. The semisubmersible rig Ocean Rover, working on the Buntal exploration well offshore Sabah, East Malaysia, was moored at depths that required two of the anchors to be set in more than 8,000 ft of water. The deepest leg of the eight-leg conventional mooring system reached 8,431 ft. InterMoor provided mooring analysis, installation procedures and installation supervision on the project. Each mooring leg, deployed using the anchor-handling vessels Normand Ivan and Normand Atlantic, consisted of a 10-metric-ton Stevpris anchor with the rig’s self-contained wire and chain. Fugro has created Fugro Gravity & Magnetic Services (FGMS) to market its gravity and magnetic capabilities for oil and gas exploration and production. The unit is the business development arm of Fugro Airborne Surveys, Fugro Ground Geophysics and Fugro Robertson (marine).
