UK-based subsea constructor Ceona announced Tuesday that it has been awarded a new deepwater contract with Houston-based Bennu Oil & Gas.

The deal will see Ceona deploy its newest vessel – the Amazon – install a flexible flow line 2.4-miles long and an umbilical 2.6-mile long on Bennu's Mirage field in the US Gulf of Mexico. The Mirage field is located in Block 941 of the Mississippi Canyon Field. The flow line and umbilical will be tied back to Bennu's Titan Production Facility at a depth of approximately 4,000 feet.

The contract is the second that Ceona has won with Bennu after the firm was previously selected to install a 1.1-mile long umbilical and two 15-mile long electric quad cables on the Clipper project in the spring of 2014.

Ceona expects to start offshore work on Mirage during the second half of this year. Project management and engineering work will be coordinated from Ceona's Houston offices.

Janelle Pence, VP Commercial Americas for Ceona, commented in a company statement:

"We have established a strong relationship with Bennu following our previous work together and this latest contract gives us the opportunity to build on this as well as our track record in the GoM. We are also pleased to be able to deploy the Amazon on this project because it provides another opportunity to demonstrate the vessel’s deepwater capabilities."
