Windermere mobilised for Malaysian projectVessel & ROV News // September 13, 2013
Hallin Marine says its subsea vessel Windermere and two deepwater remotely operated vehicles are on duty in the Gumusut-Kakap deep water oil and gas field off Sabah, Malaysia.
"This contract was won on the basis of our ability to deliver a complete support-service package backed by our experience in deep water operations," said Hallin's Director-Service Delivery Phil Chamberlain.
"Our role has been to provide ROV survey services and support for the installation of offshore pipelines, risers and facilities over a six month period scheduled to complete in October. We performed pre-installation underwater surveys utilising two work class ROV systems before tie-ins to the floating production system.”
The Gumusut-Kakap field is located 120km offshore in water of up to 1,200m. With estimated recoverable reserves of between 300 and 500 million barrels of oil equivalent, it is of significant importance to the Malaysian energy industry.
