Beach Energy books DOF Subsea for Otway phase 5

Oil and gas E&P company Beach Energy has contracted DOF Subsea Australia for its Otway offshore phase 5 transport and installation project.

The contract, expected to be completed in Q1 2023, is awarded for project management, engineering, fabrication, transportation and installation services.

Specifically, the campaign execution will cover the installation of the subsea infrastructure for four new Thylacine wells following the collection of all permanent equipment from vendors and transportation to the offshore site.

The subsea infrastructure includes the installation of subsea umbilical, flexible flowlines and connectors, structures and rigid spools.

As disclosed, DOF Subsea intends to deploy its subsea construction support vessel (SCSV) Skandi Acergy for the project execution.
