Neptune Marine Services (Neptune) announces it has been awarded a diving contract by Oil Search under its existing Master Services Agreement for Inspection, Maintenance and Repair works in Papua New Guinea.
The contract, for which the engineering phase has commenced, includes the provision of diving services for facilities maintenance at the Kumul Marine Terminal located in the Gulf of Papua. Neptune will perform the services from the Dive Support Vessel DP2 Crest Odyssey 2, and is expected on site early next year.
Neptune Chief Executive Officer, Robin King, said “We are proud to be into the second year of this MSA working closely with Oil Search. We have now opened a branch in Papua New Guinea to help support ongoing works and to clearly demonstrate our commitment to PNG.”
In 2013 Neptune performed various campaigns on-board the 82m DP2 Dive Support Vessel, the Crest Odyssey 2, on the North West Shelf of Western Australia.
The Crest Odyssey 2 is configured for both air and saturation diving and includes a three man moonpool launch dive bell and two three man hyperbaric chambers for saturation diving. The vessel was fitted out with Neptune equipment including survey and positioning systems and two ROVs prior to mobilization.
