since 1992 and in Amsterdam Midkap index since 2002.

Fugro provides the “widest spectrum” of engineering services in the fields of earth sciences, with operations
on land, at sea and from the air, in three main areas: Geotechnical, Survey and Geoscience.

Onshore and Offshore Geotechnical investigation
Onshore and Offshore Geophysical Surveys
Land Survey and Aerial/Satellite Imaging Services
Environmental Services

Fugro Middle East BV (FME), established in the United Arab Emirates in 1975, initially started as a
geotechnical and foundation engineering organization. Today, FME provides a complete range of
geotechnical engineering investigations and consultancy services, surveying and mapping services
throughout the Gulf area, India and Pakistan.
The core of the company’s activities since the year of establishment has been in the Emirates of Abu Dhabi
and Dubai. Numerous projects in the United Arab Emirates, particularly in Abu Dhabi, were carried out for
major clients both in the oil and gas industry and the public sector.
Major clients of FME include major national and international Oil Companies as well as national and
international contracting and development companies. In the public sector direct or indirect projects were
carried out for Municipalities, Public Works Departments and Water and Electricity Departments.
A list of major projects carried out by FME is included in this company profile.
FME has operating offices in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Oman, whilst project offices operate through
agency and joint venture organizations in other Middle East countries, i.e. Kuwait, Bahrain and Yemen.
