Pacific Drilling has contracted the asset integrity and IMR services provider, EM&I, to deliver ODIN underwater inspection in lieu of drydocking (UWILD) services.
The new contract is this time starting with an ROV survey on the Pacific Sharav drillship operating for Chevron in the Gulf of Mexico.
Graham Cross, EM&I Special Projects director, explains: “This is the 7th ODIN project for Pacific Drilling in various parts of the globe and demonstrates the strong relationship and partnership with EM&I.”
Graham Bissett, EM&I GM and PM responsible for delivering the project, said: “It’s very good news that Pacific Drilling recognise the added value that ODIN brings and have trusted EM&I to deliver this on another of their ultra-deepwater drillships.
The schedule is tight and has to fit in with a four day well maintenance program, but we will deliver safely and on time”.
