An independent offshore survey company UTEC has consolidated its presence in the Middle East and has completed another significant contract for a major international pipelay contractor.
This is the second year in succession that UTEC has provided support to the contractor in the region.
The UAE (Dubai) project involved UTEC supporting the state-of-the-art DP pipelay vessel in extremely shallow water providing enhanced USBL methodologies as well as the provision of survey support services on two additional DP vessels which provided diver support and remedial services to the pipelay vessel.
UTEC is one of the world’s largest independent offshore survey companies and provides a wide range of survey services including offshore positioning and construction support, geophysical and AUV surveys, dimensional control surveys, laser scanning and modeling, and geotechnical sampling. UTEC has offices located around the world including: Houston, Aberdeen, Rio de Janeiro, Calgary, Perth, Singapore, St. John’s, Naples and Dubai.
Global Sales and Marketing Director Trevor Hughes commented: “Based on our prior year’s performance the contractor as well as the end client has recognized UTEC’s extensive experience in supporting pipelay activity in harsh acoustic environments, by developing procedures and redundancy alleviating risk from the project.”
