C-Innovation Forms Subsea Projects Group
C-Innovation (C-I), an aﬃliate of Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO), has formed a turnkey subsea projects group based in ECO’s Houston office.
C-I’s in-house project management team provides engineering support, procedure development and review, project execution, and ﬁnal reporting requirements. The company said that with access to ECO’s inventory of mission-speciﬁc vessels, it provides ﬂexibility in matching and scheduling of assets, delivering savings to the customer. The group of companies also includes Chouest’s port facilities, a logistics company, tank cleaning services, and shipyards and dry docks located throughout the US Gulf of Mexico (GOM) and Brazil. With corporate headquarters in Mandeville, Louisiana, C-I’s ROV capabilities will provide support to subsea construction projects, as well as drilling, intervention, maintenance, and heavy-lift assignments.
ECO announced a 30-month agreement with BP in April 2017, extending an 8-year alliance, to provide vessel services, multi-service terminal facilities in Louisiana’s Port Fourchon, logistics coordination, and expediting and tracking cargo movement. The agreement included a new 312-ft new-generation, purpose-built platform supply vessel specifically designed for delivery of supplies to BP’s GOM production platforms.
Also last April, C-Innovation, Halliburton, and Trendsetter Engineering announced the formation of a strategic alliance to provide GOM customers with technologically advanced, integrated offshore well intervention packages. Chouset’s newest vessel at the time, Island Venture, was outfitted with equipment from all three companies.
Are Deepwater Projects Due for a Revival?
The oil price downturn spawned a lull in deepwater enthusiasm, but better project execution and reduced project lead times have helped operators achieve lower costs and better returns. What does the landscape for deep water look like in the near term? Will operators get more involved?
Imperial Delays Canadian Oil Sands Project
The decision to ramp down production on the Aspen project comes months after the Alberta provincial government imposed production cuts to handle pipeline bottlenecks. Aspen is projected to produce 75,000 BOPD upon startup.
Subsea Production Systems—Will 2019 Be a Tipping Point?
The past year ended with a surge of subsea tree awards as E&P operators locked in lower supply-chain cost. Will demand continue to grow in 2019 and allow subsea OEMs to build backlogs and take back pricing power?
