Proserv, an energy services company, has completed the first phase of one of its largest contracts yet to provide subsea control systems for deepwater projects in Brazil.
The firm has delivered the initial three of nine control systems that will support drill pipe riser (DPR) intervention services at depths of 2500 metres. The work forms part of a $40 million deal with an oilfield service company.
Proserv says that the remaining six systems are expected to be delivered by the turn of the year in line with key project milestones.
David Lamont, Proserv’s chief executive officer, said: “We are delighted to have completed the opening stage of this contract award which is testament to the hard-work, expertise and experience of our global project teams.
“From our subsea controls experts in Great Yarmouth – who are responsible for the overall project execution, engineering and build of the control systems – to the delivery of the first accompanying hydraulic power units by our dedicated manufacturing facility in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, this success demonstrates the international collaboration across the business to deliver best in class technology and service.”
Proserv’s DPR control system incorporates deepwater electro-hydraulic installation and workover controls for supporting the manipulation of all subsea operations, the tubing hanger running tools and surface test trees. The systems all feature Proserv’s Artemis 2G, a next-generation subsea electronics module.
