Ocean Installer Wins Delta House SURF Contract

Ocean Installer has been awarded a contract for an umbilical installation project with Oceaneering for LLOG on the Delta House project in the Mississippi Canyon Area of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico (GoM). This marks the highly advanced construction support vessel (CSV) Normand Vision’s first SURF contract in the GoM.

“We are very pleased that we are able to present Normand Vision to the region and demonstrate her capabilities on an interesting project,” said Mike Newbury, President of Ocean Installer in the U.S.

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 6,561 feet (2,000 meters) water depth.

The offshore installation will commence around January 15, 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.
