HAIFA, Israel – Chevron (Noble Energy Mediterranean) has awarded Israel Shipyards a 16-month coating repair service program for its offshore and onshore facilities.
Israel Shipyards CEO Eitan Zucker said: “This is the first time we will carry out maintenance work on production platforms, which will involve significant scope and duration.
“The work will be done in collaboration with a British company with the requisite expertise that will assist us in carrying out the project and implementing the localization program that includes training of Israeli workers, project managers, and coating inspectors and their gradual integration into the project.
“The company will also assist with compliance with international standards for quality and safety, acquisition of know-how, and authorization to perform such work scope almost independently following completion of the project. This project is a stepping stone for providing offshore maintenance and construction packages in additional areas.”
Israel Shipyards has provided logistic support, manufacture, and repairs for Chevron and its oilfield service companies since 2002.
The scope has included fabrication of large marine steel structures, tubular inspection and repair services, and a project concerning fabrication, painting, testing and load-out of rigid jumpers for the Tamar and Noa fields in the eastern Mediterranean Sea.
