Statoil survey contract for DeepOcean

Industry Database

Norway’s DeepOcean AS, whose UK subsidiary in Darlington has recently completed major pipeline studies in China, has been awarded a contract by Statoil for seabed survey services covering all of the Norwegian continental shelf, beginning next year.

Containing all of the country’s substantial oil reserves, the area of the Shelf is four times the size of the Norwegian mainland and constitutes around one third of the European continental shelf.

Commercial Director Rolf Ivar Sordal says DeepOcean’s light construction and survey vessel, the 85-metre Volstad Surveyor, will be used for operations which will effectively add at least six months of backlog to the company’s 2015 order book. Earlier this year it took delivery of four Teledyne TSS pipe-cable tracking systems currently being used for subsea operations in Danish and Norwegian waters and elsewhere.
