HOUSTON -- Deep Down Inc. has received its largest loose-tube steel flying lead order to date for a deepwater oil and gas development off the west coast of Africa. The company's deepwater service team will supply more than 30 leads along with associated subsea components. First delivery is scheduled for mid-July, with completion by October.
Deep Down has also received its largest distribution system commissioning service project to date for a development in the Gulf of Mexico. With the project's spar now installed, Deep Down's service team will perform the final commissioning, allowing the project to begin production. The regional spar, with DVA (direct vertical access) wells, is moored in nearly 8,000 ft (2,438 m) of water and will gather, process, and export production from three adjacent fields.
