Hess Corp. awarded Proserve a contract worth in excess of US$20 million for the provision of a 12-well subsea control system along with associated topside and subsea interface equipment for the deepwater Stampede development, in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM).

Work for the project will be carried out in various Proserv subsea service centers and technology hubs around the world, reinforcing the company’s strong inter-regional capability.
The design and manufacture of the subsea electronics modules (SEMs) and subsea control modules (SCMs) will be carried out by Proserv’s team of subsea experts in Great Yarmouth, UK, with Proserv’s Trondheim facility in Norway providing technical support. Final testing, servicing and the integration of equipment will be carried out at Proserv’s new dedicated controls facility in Houston, Texas.
The systems will be delivered to Hess in a phased approach throughout 2015 and 2016 in line with key project milestones.
Proserv has a long-standing relationship with Hess Corp., and over the past three years has secured work with the operator which, including this latest award, is estimated to be worth around $35 million. These activities included providing subsea controls equipment and services for Hess Corp.’s Tubular Bells field, a fast-track project that has just announced first production, and Hess GoM brownfield projects.
“This is a significant win for the company that highlights the strength of our technical and engineering expertise as well as our market-leading status in the subsea controls and communications field,” says David Lamont, Proserv CEO.
