Oceaneering secures well intervention contract from BP

Offshore engineering specialist Oceaneering International has been awarded a contract by BP to provide comprehensive riserless light well intervention (RLWI) services offshore Angola.

Oceaneering will provide personnel and equipment related to its RLWI services, remotely operated vehicles, survey services, and communication services integrated onto a chartered multi-purpose vessel.

The company’s work scope also includes project management, engineering, systems integration, offshore management, and project crews.

Offshore operations are scheduled to begin in the second quarter.

“We appreciate BP’s continued trust in our ability to provide them with reliable, cost effective, ultra-deepwater intervention solutions in Angola.  The award of this project reinforces Oceaneering’s position as a leading RLWI service provider in deepwater environments.  This is the latest example that performing RLWI from a multi-purpose vessel is a viable, more efficient alternative for production enhancement compared to performing similar services from a rig or purpose-built intervention vessel,” said Rod Larson, president and CEO of Oceaneering.
