Oceaneering announced that BP has decided to terminate its use of the chartered construction support vessel ‘Bourbon Oceanteam 101’ at the end of May 2016.

BP has exercised its right under the Field Support Vessel Services contract signed between the parties, for work offshore Angola.

Prior to this notice, the work was scheduled to extend through the end of January 2017.

Under the terms of the contract, the costs incurred by Oceaneering associated with the early release and demobilization of the vessel are expected to be reimbursed by BP, the company said.

Following the release of the vessel, Oceaneering intends to redeliver it to the owner. The vessel is jointly owned by Oceanteam and Bourbon Offshore.

Project management, engineering, and vessel services work associated with the provision of a second chartered vessel, Ocean Intervention III, is expected to continue as previously contracted with BP offshore Angola through January 2017, Oceaneering added.

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.
