Subsea Pipeline Stabilisation & Decommissioning ROV Support

Geo Oceans has successfully completed a contract for 24/7 ROV support over 40 days of subsea pipeline decommissioning operations for Vale in New Caledonia.

The project involved operating from a construction barge providing day and night ROV visual guidance for crane operators using a pipe grab to remove 3.6km of pipe in 12m lengths from 40m of water.

The ROV teams also provided visual guidance and touchdown monitoring for an additional scope to lay approximately 300 concrete stabilisation blocks on an existing pipeline.

Geo Oceans had two ROV teams in the field (night shift and day shift) managing and operating the Seabotix vLBV rovs. Despite challenging conditions the teams successfully executed the core scope and an additional scope within budget and faster than scheduled.
