Norwegian subsea contract Ocean Installer said it has been awarded work by Malaysia’s Petronas to assist in decommissioning the Chinguetti field off the coast of Mauritania in West Africa.
The contract follows an award from FPSO operator BW Offshore on the same field in early February.
“We are proud of continously build backlog for the West Africa region. Furthermore, we are very pleased with securing our first award from Petronas, which gives us track record for an important client with its main assets in the Asia Pacific region,” Ocean Installer CEO Steinar Riise said in a statement.
The project will be executed on a fast track utilising the CSV Normand Vision and its in-house flexible lay equipment, the company said, adding that the offshore operations will commence this month, directly after Ocean Installer completes its part of the disconnection of the FPSO Berge Helene for BW Offshore.
The scope of the project includes decommissioning of risers and umbilicals on the Chinguetti field.
The Chinguetti field is located at water depths of approximately 800 meters, about 80 km west of Mauritania.
