UTEC gets Moho Nord survey contract

February 24, 2015

UTEC was awarded the full survey services contract on the upcoming Technip Moho Nord EPIC project in West Africa.

The project, operated by Total E&P Congo, is located approximately 75km off the coast of the Republic of the Congo, at water depths ranging from 650-1100 m.

The contract covers all survey services required on multiple vessel assets during the installation of:

  • 230km of rigid pipelines,
  • 23km of flexible pipes,
  • 50km of umbilicals,
  • 50 subsea structures as well as various other structures and rigid jumpers.

The offshore campaign will be spread over 2015 and 2016, with the primary installation vessels being the G1200, a rigid pipe S-lay and heavy-lift construction vessel, and the Deep Pioneer, a multi-purpose deepwater vessel. The project will see the installation of a subsea positioning network of more than 100 acoustic transponders allowing positioning of multiple vessels and ROV’s, often working simultaneously in the field, covering tasks including pipeline touch down monitoring, subsea asset positioning and jumper metrology.

UTEC will manage the project between its EMEA regional headquarters in Aberdeen and its newly opened branch office in Pointe Noire, working closely with Technip’s operating center in Paris.
