Sea Trucks’ vessel scores work offshore Argentina
Sea Trucks Group, a provider offshore support services to the oil & gas industry, has signed a contract with Enap Sipetrol Argentina for a pipelay construction project for its PIAM Project in the Magallanes Field, offshore Argentina.
The scope of work covers engineering, project management and installation of 3 pipelines of various sizes ranging from 6 to 14 inch, with one shore approach, as well as the installation of tie-in spools and risers.
It also includes abandonment of two existing lines and recovery of flexibles. Water depths in the field are up to 70 m. At the back of the installation campaign Sea Trucks has also been awarded an accommodation services contract.
Jascon 34, one of Sea Trucks’ DP3 pipelay construction and accommodation vessels, has been nominated for both scopes, which, Sea Trucks says, demonstrates the advantage the hybrid design configuration of its DP3 construction vessel fleet.
Offshore activities are scheduled to start in the fourth quarter of 2016.
Jacques J. Roomans, President of Sea Trucks, said: “We are delighted that, in the present difficult market, Sea Trucks has been awarded this significant contract. This award demonstrates our ability to offer clients a flexible and tailored project solution based around the clients requirement, our extensive track record, and unique multi-purpose DP3 assets.”
This is a second contract Sea Trucks has announced for the Jascon 34, in less than a month. The company late in June said it had won a deal with Shell in Malaysia, to provide offshore accommodation services for the Malikai deep-water development project.
