|Friday, February 08, 2002
This 340-foot-long vessel is particularly suitable for supporting deepwater operations. Key features include a 100-ton heave compensated crane, a 1200-ton capacity below deck carousel, twin 10,000-foot rated Work Class ROV systems and 12,400-square-feet of available working deck area.
With over 10,000-kilowatts of diesel electric power available and an International Maritime Organization/Norwegian Maritime Directorate (IMO/NMD) Class 3 Dynamic Positioning system the vessel will be capable of operating safely in close proximity to structures and with a very wide weather capability.
"Halliburton Subsea is very pleased to announce this vessel deployment," commented Edgar Ortiz, president of Halliburton's Energy Services Group. "This demonstrates our further commitment to expansion within the Gulf of Mexico market place. Building on the award of the Nakika and Manatee projects for Shell this move will help position Halliburton Subsea to capture future deepwater construction opportunities in the US Gulf."
