The multi-million dollar contract off the West African coast was awarded by a UK-based subcontractor working for Total E&P Congo. Aquatic’s work will take 10 months to complete, and will start in October 2015.

Aquatic will supply reel drive systems for the subsea project, together with a team of supervisors and technicians who will provide the technical expertise and support to operate the equipment hired for the duration of the operation. Aquatic will be instrumental in the installation of 23 km of subsea flexible pipes and 50 km of umbilicals.

Martin Charles, managing director at Aquatic, said, “This project is the most significant for Aquatic to date, and affords us the opportunity to forge a closer relationship with our customer in a new geographical location, while levering support from other Acteon Group operating companies. Our people and equipment will work in close partnership with our customer to deliver the project safely and on time, where output is expected to achieve 140,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day by 2017.”

The Moho Nord subsea deepwater offshore project is located approximately 75 km off the coast of Pointe Noire in Congo (Brazzaville) and is the latest project being developed in the Moho-Bilondo License. Three other Acteon Group companies, 2H Offshore, SRP and UTEC Survey, have been awarded work on the Moho Nord subsea project since 2013.
