Helix, Clough form subsea services JV in Asia Pacific

Helix Energy Solutions Group (HLX) announces the formation of a joint venture with Australian based engineering and construction company Clough Limited, to provide a range of subsea services to offshore operators in the Asia Pacific region. Services provided by the JV, Clough Helix Pty Ltd, will include subsea well intervention and well abandonment, SURF (subsea infrastructure, umbilical, riser and flowline installation), saturation and air diving and subsea inspection, repair and maintenance services. 

The Clough Helix JV will integrate Helix ESG's well intervention equipment with Clough's new 12-man saturation diving system, to enable both to be deployed from the 118 meter long DP2 multiservice vessel Normand Clough outfitted with a 250 ton active heave compensated crane. This unique configuration makes the Normand Clough ready to carry out a broad spread of offshore tasks without spending time in port for major reconfiguration. 

"Our Well Intervention operations in Australia have a successful track record of using third party vessels. The collaboration with Clough will enable the joint venture to offer a full range of subsea services to regional operators from a dedicated vessel," said Owen Kratz, Helix ESG President and Chief Executive Officer. 

"We are excited to be partnering with Helix to provide a game-changing approach to subsea services in the Asia Pacific sector," said Clough's Chief Executive Officer, John Smith. "By providing rigless well intervention and subsea services in a single mobilization, Clough Helix will provide significant cost and schedule savings to offshore operators in the region."
