The Norwegian-based diving contractor SubseaPartner has been awarded a contract to provide air diving services at the Hummingbird Spirit FPSO operated by Teekay.
According to the company, project delivery is scheduled to take place in British sector this year.
Olympic Shipping has been chartered by SubseaPartner to supply the dedicated mother vessel.
“The capabilities of our diving asset and a strong organization to support this type of operation has proven to be valuable for the clients by providing sustainable solutions. The highly sophisticated, harsh environment Light Diving Craft used on the Barents Sea operation in the Norwegian sector will be used.
For SubseaPartner the achievement of providing diving services in UK is of great importance. This is in line with our business strategy, to be a global air diving contractor,” says Ole Morten Skogland, SubseaPartner spokesman.
The Hummingbird Spirit is a 2008 built SEVAN 300 unit located in the Chestnut field in the UK sector of the North Sea, producing for Centrica.
In July this year the FPSO completed its 100th offload at the Chestnut.
