Ocean Works International awarded contract for MWCC subsea dispersant fluid system
OceanWorks International has been awarded a design, manufacturing and test contract to provide Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC) with a Subsea Dispersant Fluid System (SDFS). The system will further enhance MWCC’s existing dispersant injection system, also developed and manufactured by OceanWorks International.
The SDFS is designed to sit on the seabed in the proximity of a subsea well at depths of up to up to 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) and provides the capability to deliver dispersant fluid to a deepwater well control incident in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The system is designed to allow the dispersant flow to be provided by either a surface vessel or autonomously based on ROV provided flow input.
Equipment to be provided includes three (3) Battery/pump modules, based on OceanWorks proven 150 kWhr UPS system design, two (2) gathering manifolds, two (2) distribution manifolds, static mixers, all interconnecting hose assemblies and deployment equipment.
“The award of this contract is a great milestone for our custom engineered solutions in the offshore oil & gas
market”, stated Rod Stanley, CEO of OceanWorks International. “We are excited to be participating in this project as it builds upon our existing products and capabilities in complex subsea system engineering, and also allows us to play a part in the ongoing enhancements to deepwater well containment capabilities”.
