Model S16-20 A A 20% duty 35 x 31.5 x 35.5 inches; 985 lbs. isit our 7263 Engineer Rd., San Diego, CA 92111-1493 (858) 571-1111 FAX (858) 571-0188 Copyright 2017 Using the Wirral Waters Investment Fund, Wirral Council has put together a compelling package of support as part of a strategy to strengthen the maritime and low-carbon sectors on the Wirral peninsula. The opening of the new fa- cility in the Mersey Waters Enterprise Zone is set to create up to 25 new jobs. Pharos Combo to Recover Subsea Products, Cables Pharos Offshore Group has paired its trenching and deburial systems with a rugged cable retrieval grab to aid the offshore industry in recovering damaged subsea products and out-of- service cables. Two of the company's cable recovery spreads were sent out recently to work on the recovery of an array cable within an offshore wind farm in the Irish Sea and the recovery of a section of an interconnector off the coast of Iceland. Aquaterra to Work on Subsea Abandonment in North Sea Aquaterra Energy has won a major contract to supply subsea high-pressure riser (HPR) equipment and services for a subsea abandonment project in the central North Sea. Aquaterra will fa- cilitate the abandonment of 10 subsea wells via deployment of a subsea HPR system from a jack-up rig. The scope of work could be extended to include two further subsea wells, bringing the total number of abandonments to 12. Riser analysis was completed in- house by Aquaterra and validated by Bureau Veritas. It has confirmed a 50- year return storm operating envelope after HPR and rig optimizations were implemented. This has simplified the project operationally and reduced costs to the operator overall. LUX Assure Appoints Partner in Malaysia Oil and gas technology firm LUX Assure has strengthened its presence in Malaysia with the appointment of a regional partner, Borneo Seaoffshore Engineering SDN BHD. Borneo Seaoffshore will support LUX in educating the local market on corrosion management best practice, while promoting its CoMic technology, an on-site deployable corrosion in- hibitor monitoring kit, which is used to inform better corrosion inhibitor man- agement and to identify if the optimum level of inhibitor is being dosed. Bluestream to Conduct ROV Subsea Structural Inspections Bluestream Offshore has secured a five-year contract, plus two-year ex- tension, with ONEgas, the combined business unit of Shell UK and the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM) for gas production in the south- ern North Sea. The contract is for ROV subsea structural inspection services and includes 69 of ONEgas's offshore platforms and subsea completions in the southern North Sea, U.K. and Dutch sectors. The contract covers subsea inspec- tion services for which Bluestream teamed with Vroon Offshore Services in Den Helder as a maritime part- ner for supplying the offshore sup- port vessel during the entire contract duration. For the 2017 campaign, Bluestream is using a DP2 vessel fit- ted with Bluestream's own inspection system and fully equipped inspection- class Saab Seaeye Tiger ROV and the compact work-class Seaeye Cougar XT ROV to perform the subsea structural inspections.
