PERTH, Australia -- Neptune Marine Services and its wholly owned subsidiary, US Underwater Services LP, has been awarded two NEPSYS repair projects in the Gulf of Mexico worth $10 million.
The combined scope of work comprises a repair to an oil platform jacket leg and repair of a column-to-mat connection on a cantilever mat rig.
On the jacket leg, the NEPSYS team will remove three X braces located between +10 and -130 ft of water. Replacement braces will be wet welded on the scalloped sleeves before three NEPSYS welds will be directly applied to the high strength steel at the nodes.
Project duration is expected to last 60 days of 24 hour operations (excluding potential weather delays) with a team of 10 welder/divers, 12 construction/inspection divers and tenders, two dive supervisors, and one project superintendent.
A smaller team of approximately 10 will undertake the work on the column-to-mat connection repair that is expected to take approximately 10-14 days to complete.
