Singapore’s PACC Offshore Services (POSH) has started work on a US$100 million-plus subsea installation and construction project off India’s west coast for state-owned Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC).
Marine services provider POSH and consortium partner Seamec are providing an integrated suite of subsea services for the seventh development phase of ONGC’s Pipeline Replacement Project (PRP-7) for its engineering, procurement and construction contractor Larsen and& Toubro.
POSH will deploy four vessels including the heavy subsea construction and installation vessel POSH Natuna and Dynamic Positioning 2 dive support vessel POSH Mallard for the project, which is expected to run until May 2024.
The contractor will oversee overall project management, integrated scheduling and installation engineering aspects as lead partner of the consortium.
POSH recently repurposed the POSH Mallard as a DP2 DSV with ABS Class Notation including integrated air and saturation dive systems, compliant to International Marine & Contractors Association and International Oil & Gas Producers’ standards to further bolster its ability to serve the subsea sector.
Having been retrofitted with 300-metre saturation and air dive systems and equipped with a 100-tonnes subsea crane that can work in water depths of up to 200 metres, the vessel is now ready to support all forms of subsea work including light to moderate construction, installation as well as inspection, remedial and maintenance scopes.
“This contract win demonstrates the strong progress made by POSH Subsea in winning and managing offshore projects, having performed numerous similar projects in the past few years. It solidifies our position as a partner of choice in the fast-growing subsea space, which is an area of focus for us. We are also pleased to add POSH Mallard to our subsea-capable fleet," commented POSH chief operating officer Ulva Chai.
