Ocean Installer has been awarded a contract by Petronas, the Malaysian oil and gas company, to assist in decommissioning the Chinguetti field off the coast of Mauritania in West Africa.

The contract follows an award from FPSO operator BW Offshore on the same field in early February.

"We are proud of continously build backlog for the West Africa region. Furthermore, we are very pleased with securing our first award from Petronas, which gives us track record for an important client with its main assets in the Asia Pacific region," says Ocean Installer CEO Steinar Riise.

The project will be executed on a fast track utilizing the CSV Normand Vision and its inhouse flexible lay equipment. Offshore operations will commence as soon as April of 2018, directly after Ocean Installer completes its part of the disconnection of the FPSO Berge Helene for BW Offshore.

The scope of the project includes decommissioning of risers and umbilicals on the Chinguetti field.

The Chinguetti field is located at water depths of approximately 800 meters, about 80 km west of Mauritania.
