Offshore engineering services provider Oceaneering International, Inc has been awarded a contract to provide monobore diverless connectors for an offshore Western Australia project
Houston-based Oceaneering will supply 3-inch M5 connectors that will be used for monoethylene glycol (MEG) and chemical inhibitor (CI) service on the field subsea distribution system.
The 3-inch M5 connector enables the intervention of subsea assets. This full bore connector features the Oceaneering Grayloc metal-to-metal sealing system and M-series latch mechanism that can be deployed by a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). The M5 connector works for applications such as gas lift, chemical injection, well stimulation, hydrate remediation, flooding and venting operations, acid injection, and scale squeeze.
Oceaneering director of engineering Nikunj Patel said “We are thrilled to provide our high-pressure, high-flow ROV-flyable M5 connectors for this project located in Australian waters. The M5 is a versatile, compact and cost-effective solution ideal for high flow MEG, CI and other chemical delivery applications.”
Oceaneering’s subsea project award in Western Australia follows recent contracts in Angola and the Middle East.
Oceaneering’s Asset Integrity group has secured a three-year contract with Cabinda Gulf Oil Company Limited, a Chevron subsidiary, to provide inspection services onshore Cabinda, Angola and offshore Angola on Blocks 0 and 14, starting in Q2 2020.
This award follows a recent award for inspection services for a major Middle East operator based in Dubai. The contract covers the provision of general and advanced non-destructive testing and fabric maintenance inspection services across the operator’s onshore and offshore facilities in the Middle East.
