Tullow hires another DeepOcean vessel for work in Ghana
- Business & Finance
Tullow has awarded a three years long contract to DeepOcean in Ghana, for the provision of a light construction vessel (LCV).
DeepOcean Ghana has mobilized the DP2 ROV/construction vessel Dina Star with two DeepOcean Ghana owned 220HP Constructor ROV systems.
The work, which is already underway, includes inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR), surveys and subsea construction on the Tullow Ghana operated deepwater Jubilee and TEN fields offshore Ghana.
The working relationship between DeepOcean Ghana Limited, an Ghanaian company in which Deep Ocean B.V. holds a 49% stake, and Tullow, started in February 2015 when it mobilized the Rem Forza to undertake multipurpose construction activities on Jubilee.
The Rem Forza has now been replaced by the Dina Star, allowing the Rem Forza to continue working with Tullow Ghana to provide accommodation and construction support on the TEN project from March 2016.
A representative of DeepOcean Ghana’s senior management stated: “We are very pleased that with this new contract we have the opportunity to increase the scope of work we are undertaking offshore Ghana for Tullow.”
He also added: We continue to demonstrate this through our use of local crew and in-country services, including Ghanaian ROV pilots and engineering support. Available competence in DeepOcean will be used to train and develop these local resources.”
