ALE said on Wednesday that the scope of work would includes engineering, procurement, fabrication, and offshore pull-in operations.

The engineering phase of this project will begin immediately with offshore operations to follow in the first quarter of 2020.

The contracted offshore SCR and umbilical pull-in operations will be performed at Mississippi Canyon on an existing production facility located south of New Orleans in approximately 1,900 meters of water.

According to the company, ALE will provide Subsea 7 and its client with a unique and lightweight equipment solution to pull dynamic loads topping 335 tonnes.

“Although ALE has the capabilities to offer 800t socket passing linear winches, or 500t chain jacking systems, the solution offered for this project has the ability to alter how high-load SCR pull-in operations could be performed moving forward,” the heavy-lift specialist said.

Heath Jones, ALE’s VP of offshore sales, stated: “As with most SCR and umbilical pull-in project scopes, we were faced with the limits of space, equipment weights vs. operational capabilities, contingencies and redundancies, and most importantly the health and safety of every person and the environment.”
