The scope of work covers engineering, project management and installation of three pipelines of various sizes, with one shore approach, as well as the installation of tie-in spools and risers.

“We are delighted that, in the present difficult market, Sea Trucks has been awarded this significant contract,” Sea Trucks President, Jacques J. Roomans, said.

The scope of work also includes the abandonment of two existing lines and the recovery of flexibles and will work with water depths of up to 70 metres (229.6 feet).

All the work will be performed by the company’s Jascon 34.

“This award demonstrates our ability to offer clients a flexible and tailored project solution based around the clients’ requirement, our extensive track record and unique multi-purpose DP3 assets,” Roomans added.

As well as the installation deal, Sea Trucks was also awarded an accommodation services contract.

Jascon 34 is one of Sea Trucks’ DP3 pipelay construction and accommodation vessels. According to the company, the award shows the advantage of its hybrid design.

Second Contract For Sea Trucks In A Month

Offshore activities are scheduled to start in the fourth quarter of this year.

This is the second contract announced by Sea Trucks Group for the Jascon 34 vessel in less than a month.

Late last month, the company announced it had been awarded a deal with Royal Dutch Shell in Malaysia to provide offshore accommodation services for the Malikai deep-water development project.

The scope of work includes accommodation support services for 200 construction personnel and activities are expected to start this month.

Jascon 34 is also being used for the project and will be connected to the Malikai Tension Leg Platform through an active heave compensated telescopic gangway.
