Oceaneering International Inc. said that its Subsea Robotics (SSR) and Offshore Projects Group (OPG) have been awarded an integrated rig services contract on March 2 for covering the Khaleesi/Mormont and Samurai fields in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
The work scope includes the provision of ROVs with collocated ROV tooling and technicians, remote positioning and metrology survey resources, and installation and workover control system (IWOCS) equipment and technicians. Work is scheduled to begin in early 2021 and carry into 2022.
“The operator’s decision to contract our robotics and IWOCS services is a positive and anticipated response to our realigned segments, which allows us to deliver the integrated processes and products that enable consistent and efficient work scopes,” Earl Childress, senior vice president and chief commercial officer, said.
This award follows the recently awarded contract for Oceaneering’s manufactured products segment to supply 2-inch M5 connectors and chemical throttle valves for the Khaleesi/Mormont and Samurai tieback project.
