Normand Baltic Gears for Vietnam Campaign
- Business & Finance
The dive support vessel Normand Baltic, currently on charter with DCN Diving, is set to depart Loyang Offshore supply base in Singapore for Lan Tay field 370 kilometers offshore Vietnam.
DCN Diving took the vessel on a long-term charter from Solstad Offshore in October last year for subsea duties offshore Middle East and Asia.
Prior to the offshore campaign, the Normand Baltic is scheduled to arrive at the HRF facility in Vung Tau to go through fit and pressure test of the Sat 02 system HRC.
The offshore work will be carried out in water depth between 125 and 190 meters using saturation divers and work-class ROV. Activities will include wellhead EHFL replacement, various riser work and future spool piece metrology.
Normand Baltic is a 96-meter DP-2 DSV fitted with a 100-ton heave compensated crane, mobilised with a 9 man classed saturation diving system and twin LARS air diving system. The vessel was also previously on charter with DCN Diving to support a hyperbaric welding project on a live gas pipeline in Indonesia.
