DeepOcean scores more work off Abu Dhabi

Offshore services provider DeepOcean has been awarded a contract for the provision of post-lay trenching and backfilling works on 56 kilometers of power cable offshore UAE.

DeepOcean said that the contract award came on the back of two completed projects offshore UAE in 2016 and early 2017.

The company’s spokesperson told Offshore Energy Today on Tuesday that the power cable would be used to power an offshore oil field bud did not disclose any other information regarding the cable.

The post-lay trenching and backfilling works are planned to begin in late 2017 with DeepOcean’s T1 self-loading trencher mobilized from the UK after the completion of an extensive upgrade.

According to DeepOcean, the T1 trencher completed over 1,650 km of subsea trenches for cables and pipelines up to 20 inches. After the upgrade, T1 will be able to cut a subsea trench with a maximum depth of 1.4 meters in various soil conditions up to 40MPa.

The trencher is also capable of carrying out mechanical backfill operations to assist in cable protection.

Tony Stokes, managing director of Asia Pacific and the Middle East, said: “We are looking forward to a successful campaign and the continuation of building our presence in the Middle East through supporting our clients with market leading assets.”
