Subsea inspection expert wins new contract

Paul Boughton

Harkand has been awarded Nexen Petroleum UK Ltd’s 2014 ROVSV inspection services work along with a longer term frame agreement. The contract marks the first piece of work Harkand has undertaken for the operator.

The inspection scope covers the Buzzard, Scott, Telford, Ettrick and Rochelle assets in the central North Sea and includes infield pipelines and structures, export lines as well as some platform inspection.

It will see the deployment of the Surf Ranger, which joined the Harkand fleet in May. The multi-purpose ROV, survey and air diving vessel will be equipped with high definition cameras, one work-class and two observation-class ROVs.

David Kerr, managing director of Harkand in Europe, said: “Harkand is continuing to grow rapidly both in size and capability and we welcome our new partnership with Nexen.”
