Neptune Marine Services Bags Rig Move Contract for Apache Off Australia

Neptune Marine Services Ltd. reported Tuesday it has been awarded an 18 month Rig Positioning and Mooring Services contract for Apache Energy Limited in Australia.

The contract which has two possible 12 month extensions, will see Neptune mobilizing survey equipment and personnel on-board the Ocean America (DW semisub) and Ocean Monarch (UDW semisub), as well as the jackup, Noble Tom Prosser (400' ILC), to undertake works on the North West Shelf.

The services are scheduled to commence in early May.

Neptune will be working closely with mooring specialist, Global Maritime Deep Sea Mooring, to provide a complete mooring and rig positioning services package. This is the third major rig move contract that will see NEPCAT, Neptune’s 3D visualization and catenary management system, implemented for the safe deployment and monitoring of moorings during semi-submersible rig move operations.

Neptune CEO, Robin King, said “it was very pleasing to be awarded this scope of work and the integration of our dedicated NEPCAT technology demonstrates our commitment to providing our clients with a leading edge solution.”
