Harkand Wraps Up BG Trinidad & Tobago Gig

Harkand, has successfully completed its first campaign in the Caribbean for BG Trinidad & Tobago.

The 75-day ROV subsea support services project was concluded at the start of March by the team on board Harkand’s multi-purpose vessel the Go Electra in the waters off Trinidad and Tobago.

The workscope included carrying out ultrasonic technology scans, free span pipeline rectification work, subsea control module change outs, and the supply and installation of anode pods and clamps at various locations throughout the North Coast Marine Area (NCMA) and East Coast Marine Area (ECMA) of Trinidad and Tobago.

Harkand Europe managing director, David Kerr, said: “We enjoy a very good relationship with BG and we are pleased to have carried out this scope of work to meet their requirements in Trinidad and Tobago, especially at this challenging time of year which is out with the usual IRM weather season in the region.

“The success of this campaign was down to the collaboration on board the Go Electra with our personnel working closely with BG Trinidad & Tobago to ensure the work was delivered safely and effectively. It is a testament to this collaborative working relationship that only five days’ weather related downtime was experienced out of the 75 day campaign.

“Our initial mobilisation was efficient with all personnel and equipment clearing customs without delay. We are also delighted to have utilised local content on this project which included ROV pilot technicians, stewards and riggers.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
