Bluestream Offshore, a subsea service provider, has secured a five-year contract plus a two-year extension with ONEgas for subsea inspection services in the Southern North Sea.
Bluestream said on Wednesday that the deal with ONEgas, a combined business unit of Shell UK and the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM), was an ROV subsea structural inspection services contract and includes 69 of ONEgas’s offshore platforms and subsea completions in the UK and Dutch sectors of the Southern North Sea.
According to the company, the work began immediately after signing the contract on May 24, 2017.
The contract covers subsea inspection services for which Bluestream teamed-up with Vroon Offshore Services in Den Helder. Vroon will supply an offshore support vessel during the entire contract duration.
For the 2017 campaign, the company is using the vessel VOS Sugar fitted with Bluestream’s inspection system and fully equipped Inspection Class Seaeye Tiger ROV and the Compact Work Class Seaeye Cougar XT ROV to perform the subsea structural inspections.
Each yearly campaign will last around 45 days and will be executed by a team of 20 people both onshore and offshore.
Adriaen Winckers, responsible for Business Development at Bluestream, said: “This is the biggest contract in the Bluestream history and we, together with our partner Vroon, look forward to cooperating closely with our client to make this project a success.”
