HOUSTON -- The HOS Mystique, Saipem America's new 250-ft (76-m) Class II DP ROV support vessel, has completed its first job and is currently mobilized in Fourchon, Louisiana for immediate work. The vessel completed a pod change on a well located in the Gulf of Mexico Green Canyon area in water depth of approximately 2,600 ft (792 m).
Saipem America recently signed a three-year charter agreement with Hornbeck Offshore Services for the newbuild. The HOS Mystique is a US-Flagged, Class II DP ROV support vessel with a permanently installed 70-ton (64-metric-ton) active heave-compensated NOV knuckle-boom crane. The vessel features two lounges, one gymnasium, and private conference rooms along with accommodations for 50 personnel.
The configuration of the vessel provides a large, stable platform for survey activities for offshore construction and subsea intervention tasks such as surveys, seabed topography and geophysical sampling, platform and pipeline inspections, touch down monitoring, light construction, and well intervention work, says Saipem.
