Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO) affiliate C-Innovation (C-I) has formed a turnkey subsea projects group. The move will allow C-I to provide subsea services with the backing and support of the diverse family of companies with the ECO group.
C-I’s in-house project management team – which will be based in Houston -- provides engineering support, procedure development and review, project execution and ﬁnal reporting requirements. With access to ECO’s inventory of mission-speciﬁc vessels, C-I will have greater ﬂexibility in matching and scheduling of assets, delivering savings to the customer. The group of companies also includes Chouest’s various port facilities, a logistics company, tank cleaning services, shipyards and dry-docks, located throughout the US Gulf Coast and Brazil. With corporate headquarters in Mandeville, La., C-I’s advanced ROV capabilities provide a broad spectrum of support to subsea construction projects, as well as drilling, intervention, maintenance and heavy lift assignments.
“C-I is highly knowledgeable in all aspects of subsea ﬁeld engineering and design,” said David Sheetz, manager of C-I's subsea division, in a 9 January statement. “We know how to get components to the sea ﬂoor and lay them out logically and eﬃciently to achieve the greatest result for our customers. This grouping of diverse services delivers enhanced savings to the customer and enables eﬃcient cradle-to-grave control of projects in the current tight market.”
