Ocean Installer wins subsea installation job in Gulf of Mexico

STAVANGER, Norway -- Ocean Installer has been awarded a subsea installation job in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) with one of the world’s leading international oil and gas companies on its largest deepwater producing field, which sits in over 1,800 m of water.

The project, which involves the installation and testing of umbilicals and associated equipment, will be managed from the Ocean Installer Houston office with onshore preparations starting immediately.

Offshore work will take place this summer and Ocean Installer will be utilising the subsea construction vessel the Normand Clipper, which is on a long-term charter from Solstad Offshore.

“This is our first SURF job in the GoM and we are very pleased to have secured this work only a year after we established our Houston office and less than four months after introducing our first vessel in the region,” says Mike Newbury, President of Ocean Installer in the U.S.

Ocean Installer opened its Houston office in April 2013, and the Normand Clipper arrived in Houston in January.
