Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. today announced the sale of five Perry XLX Heavy Work-Class Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) systems to Marine Platforms Limited (MPL). MPL offers diverse oil and gas services to the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry in West Africa from their Lagos and Onne Free Trade Zone locations. The five ROVs are scheduled for delivery in the 4th quarter of 2011.
These five TXLX ROV systems purchased by MPL will join their current ROV fleet making a total of seven TXLXs and one 100HP Olympian ROV systems fully owned and operated by the Nigerian company. The TXLX ROV systems range from 150HP to 200HP. Some are zone rated and have been fitted with an extensive array of fully integrated tooling and survey equipment. Forum’s subsea technologies team expects to provide key support during mobilizations and ongoing operations in Nigeria.

Forum also provides other remote intervention technologies and services.
