Leading independent offshore survey company UTEC has inked the survey support contract with a major international pipelay contractor.
This project encompasses pre-lay, installation support and as-built survey support on the Greater Western Flank (GWF) development off the North-west coast of Australia. Pre-lay work is due to commence in late March 2013 with the major pipelay activities to follow in Q3.
UTEC’s equipment and personnel will operate from a number of vessels including one of the contractor’s state-of-the-art DP pipelay vessels capable of laying 16” CRA pipe.
Commenting on the project, UTEC Regional Sales & Marketing Manager, Noel Cowley states: “This is a significant achievement for UTEC Australia. Over the past three years our Perth office has diligently increased the scope and range of services we offer to our clients in order to secure projects such as this.”
