C-Innovation wins flushing contract for Bass Lite flowline decommissioning
Apache Corp. has awarded C-Innovation a contract for the Bass Lite flowline decommissioning project in the Gulf of Mexico.
C-Innovation will be responsible for flushing and preparing 60 mi (97 km) of pipeline for decommissioning. The project, which is in the Mississippi Canyon area, is expected to last about two weeks, will require two vessels with coiled tubing units, and will be gas lifted using hot tap while flushing operations are executed.
David Sheetz, subsea manager, C-Innovation, said: “The project is complex, and the timing will be critical as we manage the logistics of multiple vessels and ROVs along with partner Halliburton’s multiple coiled tubing units. The ability to respond to Apache with a full solution reduces the cost to the client and also reduces the risks by dealing with a single subcontractor.”
