Aleron Scoops Up Contracts in North Africa

Aleron has recently secured two contract wins in the North Africa region through its group companies, Aleron Subsea and ROVQUIP.

Under the contracts, the company supplied Aleron Subsea Triton XL ROV together with ROVQUIP’s new decommissioning multi-mode cutting tool to Oceana Subsea.

The ROV system is used by Oceana on a subsea intervention project and will remain available for additional work in the Mediterranean, the company explained.

Aleron managing director, Mike Bisset, said: “Aleron’s business model is a perfect fit for Oceana Subsea, who are making great progress as an ROV operator. We have rented them highly capable assets, allowing them to add to their capability without deploying the level of resource required to acquire and maintain a wider range of ROV systems and tooling.

“This is further complemented by ROVQUIP’s design and production skills, based at the same facility close to Aberdeen. ROVQUIP designed and built a bespoke diamond wire cutter, specific to the project scope, within an extremely tight deadline. The rapid deployment of this tool enabled the project to proceed on time and complete the cut-off and recovery of a 30” concrete filled subsea conductor.”

Gad Habiby, managing director of Oceana Subsea said: “The rapid turn-around of the saw development and deployment enabled us to meet our project deadlines for mobilisation of the system. Oceana Subsea has found the availability of both ROV systems and engineering skills from the Aleron group to be a major advantage in the integration and test of the spread prior to mobilization.”

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.
