Ocean Installer to install subsea structures at Moho Nord

Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway – Total has contracted Ocean Installer for deepwater installations at the Moho Nord field 75 km (46.6 mi) offshore Republic of Congo.

This is the contractor’s first major job off West Africa following its creation of an Africa, Mediterranean and Middle East regional office late last year.

It will install and pre-commission an umbilical, a multi-phase pump, flying leads and spools in water depths of around 1,000 m (3,281 ft). The scope includes project management, engineering, and logistics.

All work will be managed from the head office in Stavanger, with the DP-3 construction support vessel Normand Vision handling offshore installations. The vessel’s features include a 150-metric ton (165-ton) vertical lay spread, a 400-metric ton (441-ton) heave-compensated crane, and two work-class ROVs supplied by Oceaneering.
