Oil contract for Jumbo Offshore
By Euan Youdale16 February 2009
Jumbo Offshore has been awarded a combined transportation and installation contract in the Gulf of Mexico.
The work will take place at the Cascade and Chinook subsea oil fields and was commissioned by Technip USA. Jumbo will support Technip USA by providing expertise in heavy lift and transportation during the engineering, transportation and installation phases.
It will include collecting and transporting five buoyancy cans from Technip's yard in Pori, Finland to the oil field located 160 miles (257 km) south of the Louisiana coast, in the US.
Jumbo's heavy lift vessel Fairplayer will then assist Technip's deepwater pipelay construction vessel Deep Blue with the installation of five buoyancy cans and free standing hybrid risers (FSHR).
The Fairplayer is scheduled to leave Europe for the Gulf of Mexico in the third quarter of 2009.
