C-Innovation LLC (C-I), an aﬃliate of Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO) and its family of companies, has signed a multi-year contract with a major operator in the Gulf of Mexico, securing the C-Constructor to support the New Well Delivery Program and the Holiday for inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) services.
The C-Constructor and Holiday are both light construction vessels equipped with 150 MT subsea cranes and two Schilling UHD work class ROVs each. The C-Constructor will support the new well delivery program and the Holiday will support IRM and emergent scopes for the operator.
The C-I new well delivery program manages all aspects of well delivery operations post drill rig completion through well startup. The program is designed to reduce costs for operators by combining tree and well tie-in scopes. Historically, these two scopes were separated with tree installations being performed from the rig, which is more costly than performing the work from a vessel.
“This program stemmed from our client’s need for results without additional costs, and we were able to deliver the speed, flexibility, knowledge and experience to satisfy their goals," Leigh Anderton, C-Innovation's new well delivery team lead, said. "Similarly, the program advances C-I’s goal to be leading resource in turnkey project management, engineering, and offshore execution.”
“The multi-year commitment of two dedicated IMR Construction vessels for our client in the Gulf of Mexico is another major milestone in the longstanding relationship between both parties that exhibits C-I’s industry leading capability to provide tailored offshore service packages to meet our client’s needs," Ryan Combs, program manager, C-I, said. "Fundamental elements of this success are the dedicated, talented team members from C-I and our close working relationship with our client. We look forward to what the future holds as we continue to build on our successes with this client for years to come.”
