ALE Wins GoM SCR and Umbilical Pull-In Gig
ALE has been awarded a steel catenary riser (SCR) and umbilical pull-in contract by Subsea 7 USA.
The scope of work included in the contract is for engineering, procurement, fabrication and offshore pull-in operations.
ALE will start the engineering phase of this project immediately with offshore operations to follow in the first quarter of 2020.
The contracted offshore SCR and umbilical pull-in operations will be performed at Mississippi Canyon, on an existing production facility located south of New Orleans, LA in approximately 1,900m of water.
Heath Jones, ALE VP Sales (Offshore), said: “Being awarded this project by Subsea 7 demonstrates the depth of knowledge and competencies held by the team within ALE Offshore Services. As with most SCR and umbilical pull-in project scopes, we were faced with the limits of space, equipment weights vs. operational capabilities, contingencies and redundancies, and most importantly the health and safety of every person and the environment.
“The challenge that ALE was presented with was to deliver solutions that would truly offer tangible benefits to every part of the project where we were involved, and we did just that. We look forward to the successful execution of this project and continuing to offer better solutions to the global oil & gas industry.”
