Talisman Energy to Conduct Manned Underwater Operations at Varg, Yme and Blane

Talisman Energy has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway to conduct manned underwater operations in the period from November 2013 to December 2014.

Diving contractor Technip Norge AS will perform the manned underwater operations at Varg, Yme and Blane fields.

Technip will use the DSV Skandi Arctic support vessel, designed, constructed and certified for worldwide operations.

The Skandi Arctic provides services, which include saturation dive support for offshore construction and Inspection, Repair and Maintenance (IRM) operations.

It is one of the most modern diving support vessels in the world thanks to its Hyperbaric Monitoring and Control System (HMCS), which is used to support the 24-man diving chamber complex.

The vessel is designed with special emphasis on good sea-keeping abilities and excellent station-keeping performance.

The Skandi Arctic is environmentally friendly with low fuel consumption and features which comply with DNV CLEAN DESIGN requirements.
