Oil Search awards Kumul Marine Terminal pipeline IRM contract to Fugro-TSM

Fugro-TSM, a division of Fugro Subsea Services, has been awarded the Kumul Marine Terminal Pipeline IRM (Inspection Repair Maintenance) contract by Oil Search Limited (OISHF).

The contract is for the provision of a DP2 DSV to support air diving services around the Kumul Marine Terminal in the Gulf of Papua, PNG.

FTSM has mobilised the Rem Etive, complete with work class ROV, air diving spread and associated diver tooling to undertake the IRM works around the platform, oil export pipeline and CALM Buoy.

Cal Dive International has been subcontracted to provide the air diving services.

"With its size and DP station keeping ability, the Etive is well suited to operating in the difficult environmental conditions expected on site," said Geoff Hogg, FTSM's Commercial Director. The South East Trade Winds routinely produce 25+ knot winds and swells in excess of 2.5m during the period that the Etive is expected on site.

On completion of the IRM contract the vessel will return to Singapore for other commitments.
