James Fisher Ocean Team (JFOT) has completed its first excavation for COOEC Subsea in the South China Sea.
The project, undertaken in Zhujiangkou Basin, 170km southwest of Hong Kong, was for post-lay trenching of 7km of subsea cable as part of the oil field’s joint development.
Fu Wenzhi, technical manager of COOEC Subsea, said: “We have established the trust in the technology and personnel from JFSE over the years who have once again executed the project within time and budget. Now that the equipment as well as operational and logistical support are based locally in Shenzhen, we are looking forward to further opportunities to work together.”
JFOT has two excavation spreads, the Twin R2000 and T8000, positioned permanently in China to support clients in the country’s oil & gas and offshore wind sectors.
Sue Sun, operations director of JFOT said: “We are delighted that COOEC Subsea are once again pleased by the results of the fleet which is being managed with a real regional focus locally for the Chinese market.”
The subsea excavation equipment services a number of sectors and applications including pipeline and cable trenching, deburial, rock dump dispersal and seabed clearance and preparations.
