McDermott has been awarded a contract from Saudi Aramco for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of four jackets and three gas observation platforms offshore Saudi Arabia.

Work on the contract is expected to be executed through the fourth quarter of 2017. McDermott plans to use its engineering teams in Dubai, Chennai, India and Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia with construction taking place at McDermott’s fabrication facilities in Dubai and Dammam, Saudi Arabia.


Fugro Equator, the only vessel left in the search for the missing MH370 flight, is conducting its final swing in the search area of the missing MH370.

However, several media reports indicate that the search mission could continue with the privately funded search by the manufacturer of the missing aircraft, Boeing.

 


Farstad Shipping and Siem Oil Service Invest (SOSI) informed that the companies have not succeeded in finding a solution for the restructuring of Farstad which is acceptable to all affected creditors.

The term sheet between Farstad and SOSI has terminated, and Farstad will pursue other alternatives for its financial restructuring in continued cooperation with its key financial creditors, the company said.


Ultra Deep Solutions (UDS) informed that its “Deep Installer” vessel will be Canadian flagged.

The vessel, based on the proprietary design “Red Class 6027” MT design DSCV, is a DP3, 143-meter multipurpose subsea diving support construction vessel. Reportedly, this should be the first “Canadian Flagged” DSCV in history after its delivery, scheduled for Q1 2018.

 


Subsea services group Acteon has acquired Bruce Anchor to enhance its capabilities in the provision of temporary and permanent mooring systems.

Bruce Anchor will retain its independence within the Acteon portfolio. Bruce Anchor’s director of Sales, Steve Broadbent, will manage the business, reporting to Bernhard Bruggaier, Acteon’s executive vice president of Operations.

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.
