Helix’s Skandi Constructor moves to GoM

Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc.’s well intervention vessel, the Skandi Constructor, is moving to the Gulf of Mexico to begin operations in 1Q 2015.

The Skandi Constructor, a dedicated light intervention mono hull equipped with the Helix 7 3/8in. 10,000psi subsea intervention lubricator (SIL) package, is purpose built and permanently equipped and crewed for Light Well Intervention (LWI). 

The vessel has completed work in West Africa, UK North Sea and East Coast Canada prior to its upcoming work in GoM.

In April, the Skandi Constructor received an advanced intervention winch system developed by Protea, which successfully completed initial operations off West Africa. Protea’s system, comprised of five winches, active heave compensators, and power and control equipment, was installed as an upgrade package to the existing well intervention tower on the Skandi Constructor.

Helix Wells Ops currently operates five vessels, three light well intervention and two heavy intervention, which account for about 50% of the global fleet. In addition to the Skandi Constructor, Helix’s other vessels include the SeawellWell Enhancer and converted drillship H534, the Q4000 semisubmersible, and HPI monohulls.
