Helix Energy Solutions has taken delivery of Q7000 well intervention semi-submersible rig from Sembcorp Marine, and held its naming ceremony together with Huisman.
Measuring 93.6m in length and 61.1m in breadth, the Q7000 was jointly designed by Sembcorp Marine and Helix.
The vessel can perform a wide range of production enhancement operations as well as field development support, well cleanup and well decommissioning tasks such as tubing removal and sea floor clearance.
The Q7000 is able to execute well intervention and decommissioning operations in water depths of up to 3,000m.
Helix has already entered into a contract with an undisclosed client to deploy the vessel in Nigeria in January 2020.
Sembcorp Marine president & CEO, Wong Weng Sun, said. “The delivery of the Q7000 demonstrates not only Sembcorp Marine’s proven ability to provide innovative design and construction solutions, but also our firm commitment to working with our customers to overcome challenges and complete projects smoothly. We look forward to the possibility of collaborating with Helix again in the future.”
