AOS Wraps Up Ichthys Pipelay Campaign
AOS, a specialist marine and offshore services provider, has announced the completion of its 2014-2015 campaign on the Inpex Pipelay Program.
AOS’ four X-Bow Platform Supply Vessels (PSVs) the Ocean Turquoise-1, Sea Spear, Sea Swift and Sea Frost, were chartered by Saipem to support the work on the Ichthys gas export pipeline.
AOS’ work scope consisted of transporting pipes between Indonesia and Saipem’s Pipe Lay vessel Castorone.
The gas export pipeline will deliver gas from the Ichthys Gas-condensate Field to the onshore facilities at Bladin Point near Darwin for processing.
The PSV crews have been commended throughout the program for their efforts, including formal recognition by Inpex and Saipem for safe vessel operations, and the crews’ community development initiatives in Kupang, AOS said.
