Fugro Middle East B.V. was established in the United Arab Emirates in 1975, initially, as a geotechnical and foundation engineering organization. Today, Fugro Middle East provides a complete range of geotechnical investigation onshore and offshore, construction material testing, and topographic surveys throughout the Gulf area, India and Pakistan.Many projects in particular for major clients in the oil and gas industry and the public sector were carried out in Abu Dhabi and Qatar. A major part of our activities has been in the offshore geotechnical investigations. We have also seen a substantial increase in our onshore activities driven by the large growth of the construction boom in the Gulf.
The order portfolio of Fugro contains many short-term and fast track projects which reflects the short-time decision making process of our clients and the business environment in the Middle East. Fugro Middle East maintains operating offices in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Oman, Qatar, India & Pakistan. Furthermore, we also undertake projects in Bahrain, Yemen and Kuwait through existing agency agreements.
We note that our Dubai organization is now considered the area office and is as such the centre of our activities in particular for our offshore and nearshore geotechnical activities.
Fugro Middle East does not undertake any projects in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as the country is covered by Fugro Suhaimi J.V, with the main office in Dammam.
