N-Sea, a subsea IMR provider, has began work in the Cameroonian offshore market, via a contract win with Jumbo Offshore, a Dutch offshore lifting and transportation company.
With phase one completed in mid-July, the project takes place off the shores of Cameroon’s South Province, as a part of the Hilli Episeyo subsea soft yoke installation. N-Sea’s workscope comprises diving and ROV support, performing all subsea installation of the soft yoke system.
The activity N-Sea will perform on the floating liquified natural gas (FLNG) mooring and loading facility includes seabed measuring, mattress placement, anchor base and pile positioning support and pile sleeve sediment removal. Final connection between the yoke and FLNG will be undertaken by N-Sea later in 2017, the company said.
N-Sea group commercial director, Gary Thirkettle said: “We are delighted to be supporting Jumbo Offshore with the expertise of N-Sea’s dive team, who will be utilizing our ROVs on this FLNG project.
“Whilst N-Sea has been active in Nigeria since early 2016, this contract award represents not only our first partnership with Jumbo, but also our first project offshore in Cameroon. As such, the contract reflects our continued strategy to actively target potential clients throughout West Africa.”
Hilli project manager for Jumbo Offshore, Tim Klieverik said: “Good cooperation with the Jumbo Offshore and N-Sea teams helped to bring the first phase of this significant project to a successful completion. The skilled N-Sea team will again assist us in bringing phase two of this project together at the end of the year and we look forward to working with them again.”
