Scope of Work

In 2012, the PSV MMA Leveque was contracted by Allseas Australia to perform supply duties and transport pipe, subsea structures, fuel, water and general supplies from the Dampier Supply Base to vessels working on the Gorgon and Jansz fields.

In addition to general supply runs over a 3 year period, the Leveque carried out transportation of 11 buckle initiators between the fabrication site in Henderson and the fields.

The Leveque supported the pipelay vessels Lorelay, Solitaire and Calamity Jane and supported the vessel Highland Navigator. MMA later replaced the Leveque with the Mermaid Inscription – a newbuild PSV. This provided the project with a vessel capable of significant pipe carrying capacity on a 1000m2deck area.
