Subsea World News has put together a recap of the most interesting articles from the previous week (September 21 – September 27).
In August 2012, Hammersmith-based SURF contractor Ceona acquired PDi. Despite its owner’s slump, during this year, PDi managed to secure decommissioning scopes which have moved to strengthen PDi’s place in the UKCS decommissioning market, and subsea construction in projects in West Africa working both with operators and offshore contractors.
Both the WROVs and LARS will be used to support Swire Pacific Offshore’s extensive fleet of more than 80 OSVs, as well as other third party vessels that require mobile WROV systems.
The new premises will enable the company to continue to support and expand on its underwater engineering and product solutions to the Oil and Gas, Renewables and Scientific markets.
The FEED study, which will be conducted by OneSubsea’s local team in Perth, will include the design of the full subsea production system architecture solution, including subsea multiphase boosting, for the field that will be tied-back to the existing Ngujima-Yin FPSO.
FMC Technologies will provide Enhanced Vertical Deepwater Trees, subsea manifolds, topside controls, a control system, and a distribution system for the field, which lies in the Mississippi Canyon area of the eastern Gulf of Mexico in approximately 2194 meters of water, 140 nautical miles southeast of New Orleans.
