DeepOcean AS has been awarded a contract for Seabed Survey Services for 2015 by Statoil.
The contract award supports DeepOcean’s strong position as a provider of advanced light construction and seabed survey services, and confirms Statoil’s continued trust in contractor’s consistent performance over years, DeepOcean said in the release.
Contract covers services on Norwegian Continental Shelf.
“We are pleased to receive this award that will add at least 6 months of backlog to our 2015 order book. Winning this contract in strong competition with other established subsea contractors show DeepOcean’s competitiveness in finding suitable spreads for our clients’ requirements,” says Commercial Director Rolf Ivar Sordal.
DeepOcean plans to use the light construction and survey vessel Volstad Surveyor for the work in 2015.
Volstad Surveyor is a multipurpose DP II vessel, with a working platform for performing hull and ROV based seabed mapping and surveys, structural inspection and construction support operations.
