DOF Subsea was awarded an IMR services contract to support Chevron’s North West Shelf and nearshore subsea assets in Australia with dynamic positioning-capable vessels, remotely operated vehicles, autonomous underwater vehicles and intervention, inspection, management and engineering services. This award builds on previous IMR campaigns over the life of the existing IMR services contract and secures a further five-year term under the new contract, said DOF Subsea.
In southeast Asia, DOF Subsea reported a contract for a moorings replacement and rectification project. With onshore works underway, the offshore campaign is scheduled mid-Q3 2020. The project will provide “significant utilisation” for resources and vessels, said DOF Subsea. Those vessels are anchor handling tug supply vessel Skandi Hercules and dive support vessel (DSV) Skandi Singapore. Each will be utilised throughout Q3 and early Q4 2020.
Based on an STX DSV 06, Skandi Singapore has an overall length of 107.1 m, beam of 21 m, draught of 6.6 m, with a clear deck area of 900 m2. The DSV has an offshore crane with a 140-tonne SWL, with accommodation for 100.
As an STX AH 04 CD design, Skandi Hercules has an overall length of 109.5 m, with a beam of 24 m, draught of 7.8 m, clear deck area of 970 m2, with accommodation for 90.
“These key contract awards build on successful campaigns delivered in the past for our clients and grow our track-record in the APAC region,” said DOF Subsea chief executive Mons S Aase.
