OEG Offshore (OEG) said it has delivered several ROV module contracts worth £1.8 million ($2.5 million) for TechnipFMC, Saipem and other subsea contractors.
The TechnipFMC order involved two new high specification 20ft ROV workshops for worldwide use, the upgrade of DNV 2.7-1 A60 ROV control cabins along with modifications to general purpose 20ft storage units.
A further order of three DNV 2.7-1 / DNV 2.7-2 A60 control cabins from a division of the French oil services firm has increased the order book for 2018. The work scope consists of the design, manufacture and supply of a specialist maintenance cabin, safe area cleaning unit and subsea inspection cabin used for riser inspection, all for use in international waters.
Saipem contracted OEG to upgrade several 20ft ROV control cabins and workshops, all originally supplied by OEG Offshore, from safe area to Zone II specification for use on projects in Europe. OEG said it carried out electrical works, installation of full pressurization, fire and gas systems and other critical safety equipment to comply with Zone 2 requirements. Integration of Saipem free-issue custom ROV control units was also completed.
OEG also secured repeat business from an undisclosed Houston-based subsea oilfield construction company for a second DNV 2.7-1 interlocking 13.5ft & 6.5ft insulated and lined, safe area ROV unit. It will be used to support offshore activities in the Gulf of Mexico.
In addition to sales, a long term rental contract for a fleet of modified A60 engineering cabins has been extended by a US-based subsea supplier to support ROV operations offshore Egypt and Israel.
