Denmark’s Maersk Supply Service has been contracted to deliver an integrated floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) mooring installation and replacement solution for an American oil major in the Gulf of Guinea offshore West Africa.
Maersk Supply Service will provide the full work scope from project management to execution.
Responsibilities undertaken as part of the project include engineering, procurement, transporting mooring equipment, safety management and offshore execution using four of Maersk Supply Service’s large anchor handling vessels, an ROV and survey services.
Maersk Supply Service has partnered with Houston-based InterMoor, who will support the project with its expertise within engineering, design and offshore execution of mooring system operations.
The project will be led from Maersk Supply Service’s office in Aberdeen, with an integrated project team supporting from Houston. The planning and engineering are underway, with offshore execution expected to take place during Q4 2019.
“Our goal is to take a collaborative approach that reduces risk and minimises interfaces for our customers,” said Maersk Supply Sevice head of integrated solutions Olivier Trouvé. Mr Trouvé added that Africa is a key region for Maersk Supply Service and the company looks “forward to demonstrating how our versatile assets, marine expertise, project management and engineering capabilities delivers exactly this.”
