Norwegian diving contractor SubseaPartner has increased its footprint in the UK with another contract award by the operator and FPSO owner Teekay Offshore.
The contract is for undertaking ongoing subsea work on the FPSO’s Foinaven and Hummingbird.
Detailed planning and engineering are done and SubseaPartner has chartered the vessel Olympic Zeus as support for the offshore diving campaign.
The mobilization has been executed in Haugesund, Norway and the dive team (all UK divers) has went through a proper familiarization on the vessel prior the sail-away to the Scottish sector.
“This is the company‘s second contract award from Teekay Offshore in the past year and we will further commit to the UK Operators by opening a sales office in Westhill, Aberdeen in June.
“Our global strategy to become a global FPSO field support contractor starts in the North Sea by the delivery of safe and cost effective solutions and equipment. Our Transfer Under Pressure concept and Light Diving Craft fleet contributes to meet the increasing demand for global FPSO field support,” said Ole Morten Skogland, chief commercial officer.
