Mooring Specialist Anchors Seven Figure Contract

A global marine services and mooring specialist has secured a seven-figure contract with an international drilling contractor in the Caribbean.

Interocean Marine Services Limited, a Rigmar Group company, was awarded an integrated contract for the design, procurement and installation of two tri-catenary mooring systems.

The work is already well underway. The design identified the mooring equipment, which was purchased on behalf of the client and shipped to the work site and a team of four marine and engineering personnel from Interocean’s Aberdeen headquarters are overseeing the installation and commissioning of the mooring systems in a challenging offshore environment.

Interocean is currently working across the globe with projects underway in the UK sector, the Mediterranean and Caspian Seas, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions.

Rigmar Group CEO, Keith Nelson said: “Despite these difficult times our personnel are working hard with both customers and suppliers to meet tight deadlines in a very competitive market.

Energy’s Babbage platform in May 2020. The Victoria well was drilled in 2006 and tied back to the Viking B Complex via a 4km pipeline. Production ceased in 2016 and Victoria has since been shut in, disconnected and isolated from the Viking export route, awaiting permanent abandonment.

Managing Director Nick Ford said: “Our new well operatorship division is seeing growing demand from licence holders and operators who now have the option to outsource the management of suspended wells until they are permanently abandoned. For our clients, our involvement takes away the burden of managing the wells and transfers the regulatory responsibility, enabling them to focus on their core exploration and production businesses.”

Asset and Integrity Manager Roy Milne, who heads FWM’s operated well portfolio, said: “Our emergency response teams and incident management facilities are on standby 24/7 and we also carry out the required well status checks, well maintenance and integrity management. This means clients such as NEO Energy can concentrate their in-house resources on managing their productive wells, and drilling for new ones.”
