Ocean Installer has completed a mooring recovery and reinstallation project for a GOM production facility. Work location was in ultra-deep water (>2500m) and this is Ocean Installer’s first mooring job at such water depths.
The project was executed by Ocean Installer’s operating center in Houston, Texas. Work covered management, detail engineering, planning, mobilisation, material handling, transportation, recovery- and re-installation operations to replace the mooring lines.
The Ocean Installer Construction Support Vessel Normand Clipper was utilised for the offshore campaign, which took place during 2Q16.
“With this project we continue to build our position as a provider of mooring services, reinforcing and complementing our service offerings beyond our strong SURF competency,” commented Mike Newbury, President of Ocean Installer in the US.
