DeepOcean lands Tullow Ghana contract

  • SOURCE: | qwesa2big
  • Tullow-OilDeepOcean Ghana Ltd. has announced that it has been awarded a 3-year contract with options for two additional years, to provide a Light Construction Vessel (LCV) to Tullow Ghana Limited.

    In this regard, DeepOcean Ghana has mobilised the DP2 ROV/construction vessel Dina Star with two DeepOcean Ghana-owned 220HP Constructor ROV systems that commenced offshore activities mid-March 2016.

    The scope of work includes inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR), surveys and subsea construction on the Tullow Ghana operated deepwater Jubilee and TEN Fields offshore Ghana.

    DeepOcean Ghana Limited, an indigenous Ghanaian company in which Deep Ocean B.V. (DeepOcean) holds a 49% shareholding, commenced its working relationship with Tullow Ghana in February 2015 when it mobilised the Rem Forza to undertake multipurpose construction activities on Jubilee.

    The Rem Forza has now been replaced by the Dina Star, allowing the Rem Forza to continue working with Tullow Ghana to provide accommodation and construction support on the TEN project from March 2016.

    A representative of DeepOcean Ghana’s senior management stated in a statement: “We are very pleased that with this new contract, we have the opportunity to increase the scope of work we are undertaking offshore Ghana for Tullow. Our commitment to local content, which is in line with Tullow’s has been the key element of our work. We continue to demonstrate this through our use of local crew and in-country services, including Ghanaian ROV pilots and engineering support. Available competence in DeepOcean will be used to train and develop these local resources.”
