Oceaneering has selected Friede Goldman Offshore to perform the conversion of its Marine 7 jackup to a production unit. As reported earlier, once the conversion is complete the MOPU will go to work on the Legendre North and South Fields off the coast of Australia. The estimated cost of the conversion is $80 million and some of the work to be performed will be the installation of production process and gas injection equipment, and weather-proofing against typhoons. Friede Goldman Offshore has performed quite a few offshore production conversion projects over the years.
