Global Industries, Ltd. (Nasdaq:GLBL) has been awarded multiple projects by McMoRan Oil & Gas (NYSE: MMR) for the decommissioning and abandonment of seven production platforms located in the central Gulf of Mexico in water depths ranging from 100 to 400 FSW. 

The decommissioning campaign is scheduled to commence in late April 2011 and has a projected duration of 90-100 days. 

For execution of the project, Global will be utilizing the DLB Hercules, a DP-2 equipped vessel with a crane capable of lifting 2,000 tons. The 485-foot Hercules accommodates 269 personnel, and will be carrying out decommissioning and abandonment activities, which includes fourteen major lifts up to 1500 tons. Global will also be using cutting tools developed by Norse Cutting & Abandonment (NCA), Global's partner in the rapidly growing decommissioning field. 

In announcing the award, Global's CEO John B. Reed said, "While Global continues to make great strides in enhancing our reputation as a major deepwater player worldwide, one of our long-term strengths has always been the decommissioning arena. We are proud to have been awarded this series of projects for McMoRan Oil & Gas and see this as a continuation of our long-standing tradition of safe, execution excellence in decommissioning and abandonment work not only in the Gulf of Mexico, but throughout the world."
