InterMoor Clinches Mooring System Offshore Vietnam
InterMoor, an Acteon company, was awarded a prelay mooring system by Petro Vietnam Technical Services (PTSC) for a project offshore Vietnam, announced InterMoor President Tom Fulton.
The prelaid mooring spreads were installed in July for the two offshore Vietnam locations. The moorings for each location consisted of eight conventional lines with insert wire, grounded chain and eight 12T Stevpris NG Anchors. In total, InterMoor successfully prelaid 29 anchors including 13 piggybacks in less than two weeks on both locations.
InterMoor worked in cooperation with a local Vietnam company, Thiennam Offshore Services, who chartered DOF Subsea's vessel, the Skandi Hercules, to perform the mooring installations.
The PVD 5 Tender-assisted Drilling Rig will arrive on location in October 2011 and be moored to the prelaid spread. Water depths at the locations range from 118m (387 ft.) to 135m (443 ft.).
"This is our first project offshore Vietnam and we had the full support of PTSC for the entire project duration," said Rick Luck, General Manager for InterMoor's Singapore office. "This project offers InterMoor the opportunity to further expand in this region, while continuing its focus on international growth."
