Ceona Lands Mirage Field Job for Bennu

UK-based SURF contractor, Ceona, has been awarded a new deepwater contract with Houston-based Bennu Oil & Gas LLC in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) on their Mirage field.

This contract comes after a first contract was awarded and completed last year for operations on their Clipper deepwater field.

The agreement will see Ceona deploy its newest vessel, the Amazon, to install a flexible flowline of approximately 2.4 miles (3.8 kilometres) and an umbilical of about 2.6 miles (4.2 km) from Bennu’s Mirage well location, which is located in Block 941 of the Mississippi Canyon Field. Each will be tied-back to Bennu’s Titan Production Facility at a depth of approximately 4,000 feet (1,200 metres).

The contract is the second that Ceona has won with Bennu after previously being selected to install a 1.1 mile (1.7 km) umbilical and two 15 mile (24 km) electric quad cables at a depth of 3,000 ft (914 m) on the Clipper project in spring 2014.

Offshore work is scheduled to begin in the second half of 2015 and, as with the previous operation, the project management and engineering work will be coordinated from Ceona’s Houston offices.

Janelle Pence, VP Commercial Americas, commented: “We have established a strong relationship with Bennu following our previous work together and this latest contract gives us the opportunity to build on this as well as our track record in the GoM. We are also pleased to be able to deploy the Amazon on this project because it provides another opportunity to demonstrate the vessel’s deepwater capabilities.”

The project is the second that Ceona has been awarded in the GoM to be carried out by its flagship field development vessel, the Ceona Amazon. In March, the company announced a Letter of Intent for a major rigid pipelay project in the Gulf of Mexico for leading US independent oil & gas operator, Walter Oil & Gas Corporation.

The unique Ceona Amazon will be deployed on the Coelacanth export pipelines project with the scope of work involving the vessel laying both an oil and gas export line, totalling more than 22.5 miles (36km).
