Oceaneering to use ‘Island Pride’ for GoM work

Oceaneering International, Inc. has entered into a two-year charter for use of the Island Pride, a multi-service subsea support vessel owned by Island Offshore Shipping International AS.

The vessel was delivered to Island offshore from Vard Brevik yard in April this year. Oceaneering expects it will be available for work in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico (GoM) in early January 2015.

According to Oceaneering, before the vessel starts the work it will undergo modifications to enhance its service capabilities, including reconfiguration to accommodate two Oceaneering high-specification, work class ROVs. The vessel will also be equipped with a satellite communications system capable of transmitting streaming video for real-time work observation by shore personnel.

The Island Pride has an overall length of approximately 340 feet (103 meters), a Class II dynamic positioning system, accommodations for 94 personnel, a helideck, a 150-ton active heave compensated crane, and a working moonpool.

According to the statement, the vessel is expected to be used to augment Oceaneering’s ability to provide life-of-field and light construction services in the ultra-deep waters of the GoM and other international markets, depending on demand. These services include performing inspection, maintenance, and repair (IMR) projects and hardware installations. IMR projects are expected to include a wide range of subsea intervention tasks, including chemical well stimulation and hydrate remediation. Hardware installations are expected to include umbilicals, subsea trees, flowline jumpers, and flying leads.
