DeepOcean awarded IMR contract by Equinor

Norwegian subsea services provider DeepOcean has been awarded a contract by Equinor for IMR services.

The contract is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2020, and has a duration of up to nine months work utilising multipurpose construction vessel Normand Ocean.

Work comprises subsea ROV operations covering inspection, maintenance and repair activities on Equinor’s assets on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

Rolf Ivar Sørdal, commercial director for subsea services at DeepOcean, commented: “During the past number of years, DeepOcean has performed a wide range of complex and demanding subsea operations for Equinor, with strict safety, quality and flexibility requirements. Following our successful execution of the first year under the new IRM frame agreement in 2019, we are pleased to learn that Equinor yet again selects DeepOcean as their preferred partner. We look forward to further develop our cooperation with Equinor and hope the 2020 season will provide an opportunity to test new technology being developed in our company.”
