Hallin Marine to support McDermott offshore MalaysiaContracts, Tenders and Rates // February 21, 2007
Hallin Marine is mobilising a new Saturation Diving System, crew and divers onto the J Ray McDermott Pipelay and Derrick Barge DB26 that will be performing pipeline construction work offshore East Malaysia for Sarawak Shell Berhad, part of the Royal Dutch Shell Group.
This activity is part of the 2007 McDermott field development campaign works for Shell’s Malaysian arm. With subsea diving assistance from Hallin, McDermott will be completing installation of offshore platforms and interconnecting subsea pipelines.
The primary focus of Hallin’s workscope is to provide the Saturation Diving System and specialist construction diving personnel to support the subsea construction activities in water depths to 100m. Mobilisation works have already commenced.
The contract period is 10 months with options to extend thereafter.
The system Hallin is mobilising is its latest new build Saturation Diving System Sat 05 for the McDermott works. The construction of the system was completed at Hallin’s yard in Singapore in February this year.
Built to ABS Class, Sat 05 is a 12 man saturation system with a three-man bell, Gas Reclaim and Hyperbaric Rescue Chamber. Hallin is currently building a further two new build saturation diving systems which it expects to complete later this year.
The contract, awarded by McDermott, starts immediately and will last for 10 months initially, with possible extensions thereafter. This is the second contract Hallin has been awarded by major offshore contractor J Ray McDermott in as many years.
