Dutch offshore services provider DeepOcean has secured work for the Rem Forza subsea construction vessel in Ghana.
The vessel, owned by Maersk Supply Service, but for years working for DeepOcean, will keep working for Tullow, this time at the company’s TEN development, offshore Ghana, where Rem Forza will provide accommodation support, commissioning support, and construction / survey support. These activities will start end of February, and subject to the exercising of options, could continue until September this year.
