DeepOcean has been awarded a contract for the provision of post-lay trenching and survey works in Australia. Works will be performed from DeepOcean’s DPII MSV Volantis using the 2,800hp jet trencher UT-1.

DeepOcean has a long track record of providing trenching services for oil and gas contractors and operators in the Asia Pacific Region. This contract for post-lay intervention works is scheduled for Q4 2015 and will see DeepOcean’s Volantis mobilize from current works offshore Malaysia to Australian waters.

The contract was won recognizing DeepOcean’s track record in trenching operations and the advanced technology of DeepOcean’s UT-1.  The 2,800 hp free-flying ROV jet trencher has proven to deliver cost efficient solutions worldwide, trenching over 650 km of various products ranging from small diameter cables to large diameter rigid trunk lines.

Tony Stokes, Managing Director of Asia Pacific & Middle East, states, “We are extremely pleased to receive this award in Australian waters.  This project highlights the requirement for such front-end trenching technology in the region and the demand for expertise found within DeepOcean and the UT-1.  We look forward to a successful campaign and growing our presence in Australian waters”.
