Hallin Marine’s Vessel and ROV to Assist in Deep Burial of Offshore Pipeline (Indonesia)
Hallin Marine Subsea International Ltd, a Superior Energy Services company, is providing a vessel plus an ROV to assist in the deep burial of a major Indonesian offshore pipeline.
The 16 inch pipeline from the Kodeco Processing Platforms in the Madura Sea to the onshore Receiving Facility in Gresik, East Java, is being reburied to a greater depth under a contract awarded to PT Cape an Acteon company and managed by Offshore Installations Services Ltd (OIS) another Acteon company.
Hallin will supply the DP2-rated Penrith, complete with crew, as a reliable working platform for the project, which is expected to last for some 100 days. Hallin will also supply the Work Class ROV and its operating team and engineers to follow the progress of the work.
OIS will deploy a mass flow excavation system from the Penrith to create the deeper channel for the pipeline. Hallin will support this operation with a Work Class ROV to help monitor the trench profile and if necessary assist in the deep burial procedure.
The vessel is currently mobilizing in Singapore, from where the vessel support will be managed.
Rik Zwinkels, the managing director of Hallin’s East Division, said: ’We are pleased to be working with OIS and PT Cape on this project. With close liaison with the client from an early stage of planning, we have together tailored a solution that fits closely with both the client’s strengths and the project’s goals.’
