A new partnership between Ashtead Technology and Ocean Atlantic Petroleum SA (OAP), has successfully executed its first marine services project in West Africa and has received award for further work on March 18.
Integrated subsea technology and services specialist, Ashtead Technology entered into a co-operation agreement with inspection and asset integrity company, OAP. Leveraging their joint capabilities, Ashtead Technology has completed a multi-asset, Class-approved mooring inspection campaign for Total E&P Angola in the Girassol and Dalia fields, and has been awarded further work in the Pazflor and CLOV fields.
The underwater inspection scope, which will avoid the need for drydocking, combines Ashtead Technology’s visual inspection, chain cleaning, measurement and 3D modelling technologies, with OAP’s team of experienced offshore technical personnel. OAP’s operations base in the country’s capital city of Luanda will be used to store and maintain the equipment.
“OAP’s knowledge of the Angola market and in-country technical expertise makes them the ideal partner to support our growth ambitions in Angola,” David Mair, Ashtead Technology’s business development director, said. “Winning this campaign for Total E&P Angola straight off the bat underlines the strength of our combined offering to operators in the region.”
Headquartered in Aberdeen, U.K., Ashtead Technology has nine facilities in energy hubs around the world. It has one of the largest equipment fleets in the subsea supply chain coupled with the R&D capabilities to develop bespoke solutions.
Established in 2014, Ocean Atlantic Petroleum provides a variety of technical services to the Angolan energy sector, including subsea inspection and asset integrity.
