Deep Down hired for two emergency umbilical repairs

Houston-based oilfield services company Deep Down has received orders from two, unnamed, independent oil and gas operators for emergency umbilical repairs.

Deep Down said on Friday that both projects include design, engineering, and the manufacture of associated umbilical accessories.

One solution is for a damaged umbilical, which will be retrieved, repaired, and reinstalled in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Deep Down will provide the umbilical termination assemblies, in addition to decommissioning, terminating, and commissioning the recovered umbilical.

This work is scheduled to be completed on an expedited schedule during the first quarter of 2020.

The second solution is for the replacement of a leaking gas lift flowline off the west coast of Africa. The company will modify and install two umbilicals from a floating production storage and offloading unit (FPSO) to an existing platform.

The solution will include topside terminations, in addition to installation equipment and services. This work is scheduled to be completed during the second quarter of 2020.

Charles Njuguna, Deep Down’s president and CEO, said: “These awards from two new customers resulted from revitalized efforts to expand our customer base by highlighting our unique expertise, experience, and problem-solving capabilities for subsea and topside oil and gas production challenges.”
