Neptune Marine Services, MMA Offshore’s subsea business, recently completed another successful campaign for Oil Search Limited (OSL) in Papua New Guinea.
The five-week work scope comprised of inspection, repair and maintenance work on OSL’s assets in the Kumul Field, with work carried out from chartered vessel, the Normand Australis. The vessel was mobilised in Singapore and subsequently sailed to Port Moresby to mobilise the construction crew and commence work.
This campaign had a diving focus but drew upon personnel and expertise from a number of service lines including Survey, Engineering, and Stabilisation and combined the efforts from teams located in Perth, Singapore, Aberdeen and Melbourne.
Conducted under the ongoing service agreement between the two companies, the campaign continued to build on the successes of previous works conducted in PNG. Through our previous projects conducted in the region, Neptune has acquired an in-depth understanding of the specific challenges and requirements of working in Papua New Guinea and has developed a robust network of local support services. The campaign was completed incident-free and within the planned timeline.
Commenting on the campaign, Executive General Manager – Subsea Services, Tom Radic, said, “The frame agreement with OSL continues to provide great outcomes for both parties involved. Once again, this annual campaign has shown our ability to provide an efficient, integrated and safe solution to our clients. Well done to everyone involved in the project for continuing to deliver success.”
