DOF Subsea UK Limited has been awarded a contract by Maersk Oil UK to undertake replacement of the Dumbarton Drill Cluster Centre (DCC) flexible production riser at the Global Producer 3 FPSO located in block 15/20 of UK sector North Sea. The work will take place at a water depth of 140m.
Engineering work associated with the project has already commenced with the offshore works scheduled to begin in July 2014. DOF Subsea’s long term chartered construction support vessel, Normand Reach, will support the replacement of the DCC Production Riser.
The scope of work includes all activities associated with the existing riser recovery, existing buoyancy removal, new buoyancy installation, new riser re-installation and all associated surveys. The work will involve a significant, dedicated project team drawn mostly from DOF Subsea’s pool of highly skilled personnel.
