Horizon recently provided ROV services for Valentine Marine Gulf Limited on an ONGC India project during a 2 month campaign in the Heera Field, Offshore Mumbai. The work was centered around an installation for a four legged jacket and topside. Horizon’s ROV was mobilized onto Valentine’s DLB 1600 barge for the work.

Horizon’s Inspection class ROV, the Seaeye Cougar XT, was selected for the job as maneuverability was key. Construction specific manipulators were also needed due to the level of internal inspection work required on the platforms. Quality video streaming was also important due to the challenging field conditions. Despite extremely poor visibility of 0.5 meters, the ROV supported the entire installation and performed well during complex operations such as internal anode counts and conductor monitoring with 100% recorded uptime throughout the campaign.
The ROV also carried out debris clearance during the pre and post ROV survey, Valentine Marine stated their appreciation for Horizon’s efforts during the project;
“Please extend my appreciation to your team as their performance, and that of Horizon’s ROV spread, was very good on this project. The ROV also saved us from having to recover debris and dropped objects.”
