Subsea services and technology products’ company Cortez Subsea has secured its first contract win in Ghana for pipeline inspection work worth $1 million.

Cortez Subsea will perform pipeline inspection and commissioning activities using a work class ROV for Microperi Marine Contractors.

The award marks the first contract for Cortez Subsea in West Africa and follows on from projects in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Middle East, extending the company’s reach from its North Sea base to supplying tailored subsea services to the global market.

Managing director Alasdair Cowie said, “Over the past 12 months, we’ve made a significant investment in new equipment, technologies and staff ensuring we have the workforce and systems in place to respond to customers’ needs quickly and cost-effectively anywhere in the world.

“This scope of work in Ghana not only demonstrates our capabilities in the deepwater environment but also enables us to strengthen our ongoing relationship with Microperi Marine Contractors and develop our technical expertise and abilities in the burgeoning West Africa region.”

Cortez Subsea provides a range of subsea services and products to U.K. and international clients in the offshore energy industry, specializing in the four areas of installation, inspection and intervention and decommissioning in the U.K. and international oil and gas industry offshore.
