Ocean Installer secures work off the coast of Angola

Ocean Installer has been revealed as a consortium partner with Oceaneering in a significant contract from TotalEnergies Angola and its partners in Block 17 to carry out the transportation and installation work for the life extension project of the Girassol FPSO, which has been producing since 2001 to 2031.

Ocean Installer will utilise its in-house expertise to project manage, engineer, and execute the project. The scope includes recovery of the old risers, transportation and installation of 10 replacement risers as well as a gas lift umbilical, fabrication and assembly of the permanent equipment in-country and an extensive topsides support and modification campaign.

Oceaneering, which revealed the contract win in September last year, will be responsible for the air and saturation diving services, including associated project management, engineering and procurement activities.

“The GIR FLEX replacement project is our most significant project award from TotalEnergies to-date. This reflects the continued faith that TotalEnergies has placed in us, with several project awards since 2015,” said Kevin Murphy, chief executive of Ocean Installer.

Ocean Installer’s project management and engineering team will be based in the Stavanger office, while Oceaneering will receive support from Luanda, Aberdeen and Stavanger.

Block 17 is operated by TotalEnergies, along with Equinor, ExxonMobil, Azule Energy and Sonangol P&P.
