Oceaneering Awarded Three Long-Term ROV Contracts

Oceaneering International, Inc. has been awarded three long-term remotely operated vehicle (ROV) contracts by Chevron USA to provide drilling and production support services in the Gulf of Mexico. Three new Hydra Magnum ROVs will be furnished to Chevron for use onboard semisubmersibles Ocean Quest and Ocean Neptune and FPS system Genesis SPAR. This month, the vehicle is scheduled to begin a three-year contract to support Chevron's exploration drilling program onboard Ocean Quest.

The second vehicle will be mobilized to Ocean Neptune in September, to support a nine-month program to pre-drill the wells at the Green Canyon 205 Genesis location prior to installation of the SPAR. The third vehicle will be mobilized to the SPAR in the fall of 1997, under a three-year contract to assist in the drilling and production of the Genesis prospect.

The Magnum vehicles are high-thrust, cagedeployed ROVs designed and manufactured by Oceaneering, and are reportedly capable of operating in water depths of up to 10,000 ft. (3.048 m).

They are piloted by means of a microprocessorbased control system through a fiber-optic armored umbilical deployed from a surface vessel. Reportedly, these vehicles feature the latest advances in technology for improved performance, optimum adaptability and increased reliability. For more information on Oceaneering International, Inc.
