Highlights of the Week
Subsea World News has put together a recap of the most interesting articles from the previous week (August 15 – August 21).
During Q2 and so far in Q3 2016, DOF Subsea reported contract wins with a total value of NOK 3.3 billion, including options.
According to the company, the HD and UHD-III ROVs will be delivered by FMC Technologies’ Schilling Robotics business line in December 2016.
The divestment plan is a response to vessels in lay-up, limited trading opportunities and the global over-supply of offshore supply vessels in the industry, the company informed on Thursday.
Helix Well Ops UK has completed the industry’s first riser-based coiled tubing intervention project from a mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU) class light well intervention vessel (LWIV) the Well Enhancer.
Launched in 2009, the 132-metre long vessel was designed specifically to perform operations such as wireline and coiled tubing interventions and has undertaken over 130 well interventions in the North Sea, the Atlantic Ocean in Irish waters and offshore West Africa.
The vessel has started its 8-year charter contract with Petrobras. It is the first of 4 PLSVs fixed on long-term charters with Petrobras which were awarded to the joint venture between DOF Subsea and Technip in August 2013.
