MDL Bags Equatorial Guinea Pipelay Gig

Maritime Developments (MDL) has been awarded a contract to supply a complete pipelay spread and personnel for a flexible installation offshore Equatorial Guinea.

The award comes from a new client, whose workscope covers the launch of a number of new wells in an existing network of drill centres in the West African basin.

The MDL spread will consist of the MDL Horizontal Lay System (HLS), delivered with a 4-track pipelay tensioner; an MDL Second-generation Reel Drive System and MDL’s integrated Track and Cradle System.

The project is due to begin in Q3 this year and will be MDL’s fourth campaign in West Africa in 2019. Previous missions included operations offshore Nigeria and Ghana.

Dave Gardiner, MDL BD & commercial manager, said:

“This growing momentum of MDL’s equipment utilisation in West Africa is a result of our clients experiencing first-hand the benefits of our portable fleet for operations in this region.

“The equipment is easily mobilised on a vessel of opportunity, and our portfolio allows us to tailor a pipelay spread to optimise the client’s work scope. For that reason, the MDL spread helps bring time-constrained wells online quicker and cheaper than when relying on dedicated pipelay vessels.”
