ABERDEEN -- Sonsub UK has secured a third extension to its contract with Burullus Gas Co. for field support work in Egypt’s sector of the Mediterranean Sea.

The company’s DP Reel ROV support vessel will remain on charter providing inspection, repair, maintenance, and transportation services until November.

In the UK northern North Sea, Petrofac Energy Developments has contracted Sonsub for tie-in work at the West Don development in block 211/18a.

The work includes installation, testing, and protection of nine spool pieces and two umbilical jumpers in a water depth of 172 m (564 ft). The equipment will connect 8-in. (20.3-cm) water injection, 8-in. oil and 3-in. (7.6-cm) gas lift production pipelines, and umbilicals to the P2 water injection well and a subsea distribution unit.

West Don’s wells will be tied back to the Northern Producer floating production platform. Sonsub’s DSV Bar Protector should start the work late this month or early July.
