ACE Winches Secures Major GOM Deals
ACE Winches revealed Tuesday that it has been awarded two “major” contracts in the Gulf of Mexico by Subsea 7.
The first was for the Shell Vito project, which is a deepwater discovery approximately 150 miles south of New Orleans.
This contract covers the engineering, project management, manufacture, operational personnel, installation and pull-in of a single 14" export steel catenary riser (SCR) pipeline, a single 10.75" export pipeline, two 10.75" SCR production flowlines, a single 10.75” SCR gas lift flowline and the dynamic umbilical system in a water depth of 4,100 feet.
The second contract award was for the BP Mad Dog Phase 2 project, a deepwater development located in the Southern Green Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico.
This contract covers the engineering, project management, manufacture, operational personnel, installation and pull-in of six catenary and three flexible risers ranging from 8”-16” and four umbilical risers to hang-off positions on the FPU in a water depth of 4,500 feet.
“The Shell Vito and BP Mad Dog Phase 2 projects are major contract awards for ACE Winches,” Alfie Cheyne, ACE Winches CEO, said in a company statement.
“Contracts such as these help us sustain and develop our workforce of almost 200 people in Aberdeenshire, bringing jobs and significant value to the local economy,” he added.
“It also highlights how our business is uniquely positioned to provide innovative solutions across our engineering, manufacturing and rental services,” Cheyne continued.
Earlier this year, ACE Winches revealed that it had delivered a “revolutionary and bespoke” new product for the installation and pull-in of two SCRs on the Buckskin deepwater development in the Gulf of Mexico.
ACE Winches describes itself as a global leader in the design, manufacture and hire of lifting, pulling and deploying solutions and the provision of associated hire personnel for the oil and gas, marine, decommissioning, civil engineering and renewable energy markets. The company, which is based in North Aberdeenshire, traces its roots back to 1992.
