DeepOcean Completes Liwan 3-1 Works Off China
DeepOcean UK, a subsidiary of DeepOcean Group Holding BV, has completed substantial works in China on the Liwan 3-1 Project.
Prior to trenching, activities included construction works involving crossings along the pipeline route utilizing the WROVs and technicians onboard Volantis to deploy over 100 mattresses along the pipeline in preparation for the lay campaign. Trenching activities with the UT-1 and dedicated crew achieved burial depths along the route deploying the UT-1 jetting swords to 2.5m below the seabed for trenching of the large diameter pipeline.
Upon completion of trenching activities in August 2013 in the shallow water section of the project for COOEC Subsea, Volantis was immediately contracted by Saipem to perform subsea field development activities in the deep water section of the Liwan 3-1 field operating ROVs in excess of 1,400m water depth. DeepOcean was responsible for various tasks infield working closely with clients to deliver safe and efficient subsea operations.
Tony Stokes, Director of Asia Pacific for DeepOcean said: “It was a privilege to be part of such a momentous project in China. Working on both segments of China’s first deep-water field development displays the confidence our clients have in DeepOcean’s ability to deliver trenching solutions along with diver-less construction work scopes in the dynamic Asia Pacific Region.”
