Ocean Installer has been awarded a contract for an umbilical installation project with Oceaneering for LLOG on the Delta House project. The location of the project is in the Mississippi Canyon Area. This marks the highly advanced construction support vessel (CSV) Normand Vision’s first SURF contract in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM).
“We are very pleased that we are able to present Normand Vision to the region and demonstrate her capabilities on an interesting project,” says Mike Newbury, President of Ocean Installer in the US.
The scope of work includes umbilical transpooling, pre-lay survey, installation of umbilical with dynamic and static sections and umbilical pull-in to the semisubmersible.
Normand Vision will use the 1800te carousel on the back deck of the vessel to install the umbilical for the Son of Bluto 2 discovery in approximately 2000m water depth.
The offshore installation will commence approximately 15th of January 2015. The project management and engineering is located in Ocean Installer’s Houston Office.
This is Normand Vision’s first SURF project in the GoM after taking on several comprehensive projects on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, including for Statoil and Norske Shell where she has installed a number of flexible flowlines and umbilicals.
