Keel laid for second ESV for Remedial OffshoreVessel & ROV News // February 14, 2008
The keel of the second of Remedial Offshore's ESVs has been laid.
Remedial Offshore (Remedial Cyprus PCL) has announced that the keel has been laid for Elevating Support Vessel 2 (ESV-2), one of the next-generation offshore well intervention and service vessels it has under construction.
This means the first major hull sections have been joined, with further hull block sections awaiting integration.
The vessel’s spud cans are completely fabricated, along with the entire rack/chord corner posts which are welded and ready for assembly.
Quarters and other components are under construction and key owner-provided items such as engines, pumps and switchgear have been delivered to COSCO.
The COSCO build schedule remains on-track to deliver the vessel during the third quarter of 2008.
Remedial Offshore will operate the ESVs to facilitate production enhancement activities for existing oil and gas wells in mature fields.
The full range of ESV-based services can be performed in virtually any water depth up to 325ft (100m).
Remedial Offshore’s ESVs are designed to provide a safe and efficient operational environment for well intervention and workover activities while minimizing logistical deployment issues.
The ESVs are being offered to international oil and gas operators on long-term contracts.
