N-Sea breaks 200-day dive threshold

N-Sea, an inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) subsea services expert, has completed over 200 continuous days of air and saturation diving in the Red Sea.

The multi-level, twin bell operations commenced in July 2019 after being awarded by a supermajor operating in the Mena region. N-Sea personnel immediately went into full operation.

Deployed via dive support vessel the Lichtenstein, the on-going workscope comprises the decommissioning and installation of spool pieces and risers, free span rectification and smart flange repairs.

This is N-Sea’s first saturation diving project undertaken in Mena, following a period of significant development in the Middle East. Handled by N-Sea’s Dubai base, the project has consolidated N-Sea’s position as one of the industry’s leading providers of commercial diving.

Commenting on the project, Asa Gamble, Managing Director of Operations in the area says: 'The scale of this campaign reflects N-Sea’s assertive growth strategy in the region, which led to over $20 million in contract wins during 2019 and continues to yield positive results in 2020.'

He adds: 'Operating at the highest levels of safety and efficiency, and with over 110 personnel involved, this major project illustrates not only our best-in-class capabilities but also a solid commitment to the region, as we continue to invest in our workforce, assets and technology.'

N-Sea specialises in subsea services for the oil and gas, renewable and telecom/utilities industries, as well as for civil contracting communities. With a focus on safe and efficient operations, N-Sea provides near shore, offshore and survey services to asset operators and tier 1 contractors.
