Hallin Marine, a Superior Energy Services company, announces the start of a saturation-diving and air-diving project off the coast of Mumbai, India. Working in partnership with Bumi Armada Berhad, Hallin provides a complete diving system plus full diving team and operating crew.
Rik Zwinkels, Managing Director of Hallin East says: “This project centres on the installation of three new wellhead platforms, D1-B, D1-C and D1-D). Output will be processed on board a floating production, storage and off-loading vessel located 2 kilometres southeast of the existing D1 platform which is 200 km to the west of Mumbai. The greater part of the saturation diving activity will be undertaken on a pipeline-end manifold structure located in 95 metres of sea water. Additional saturation diving will be conducted at the D1-B platform and along the proposed power cable route, all at between 82 and 95 metres water depth. The diving work scope will include J-tube protection cover removal, messenger-wire connection to power cable, concrete mattress placement if required, tie-in of flexible riser flange connections at the pipeline end manifold, subsea tie in and jumper connections, and post-installation surveys.”
The project is scheduled to complete by April 2013 with option to extend.
