Ocean Installer Bags Moho Nord Contract Off Congo

Ocean Installer has been awarded a contract for deep water UFR installation work with Total E&P Congo at the Moho Nord field off the coast of the Republic of Congo.

The contract is Ocean Installer’s first major operation in West Africa following the creation of the Africa, Mediterranean and Middle East regional office in the second half of 2014, the company said.

“We are delighted to have been chosen for this job in a very competitive market and we are looking forward to cooperate with Total E&P Congo on this complex project. The award reflects our efforts over the last 12 months to bring our proven track record to the African market and validates our geographical expansion strategy,” says Steinar Riise, CEO of Ocean Installer.

The project will see Ocean Installer install and pre-commission an umbilical, Multi-Phase Pump (MPP), flying leads and spools in water depths of around 1,000m. The scope includes project management, engineering and logistics, in addition to offshore work.

The project will be managed from the Ocean Installer Stavanger Head office, whilst the DP3 Construction Support Vessel Normand Vision will be utilised for the offshore execution. She is equipped with a 150Te Vertical Lay Spread (VLS), a 400Te active heave compensated crane and two work class remotely operated vehicles from Oceaneering.

The Moho Nord field is located 75km off the coast of the Republic of Congo in water depths ranging from 450 to 1200 metres. Total E&P Congo holds the operatorship with a 53.5% interest, alongside Chevron (31.50%) and state-owned Société Nationale des Pétroles du Congo (15%).
