Media Release: Reef Subsea secures multi-million pound contract on Boyla development

Q1000 Jet Trencher

REEF Subsea Integrated Projects has secured a multi-million pound contract with Technip Norge AS for trenching services on the Bøyla Development Project in the North Sea.

RSIP will provide the state-of-the-art Q1000 jet trencher, along with a team of experienced operators, to conduct trenching services in connection with the Bøyla project located 225 kilometres West of Stavanger, Norway, at a water depth of 120 metres.

RSIP will also provide all of the associated engineering, procedures and onshore and offshore project management necessary to complete the trenching workscope, which will take place in 2014.

The Q1000 is an industry-leading jet trenching ROV embracing the latest technologies in jet trenching and ROV design.

With 750kW of total installed power and 700kW of variable jetting power, the Q1000 is capable of trenching pipelines, umbilicals and cables up to three metres in the seabed.

This proven design has been upgraded, based on RSIP’s specific requirements, to operate in either high-pressure mode or high flow rate mode depending on seabed conditions.

Reef Subsea Integrated Projects (RSIP) is the new division formed from the merger of Reef Subsea Power & Umbilical and Reef Subsea Norway.

This restructure is aimed at creating a much more effective projects delivery division as the company continues to grow.

RSIP will operate all of the vessels under one division and will be able to share its exceptional engineering resource with greater flexibility across its sites in Thornaby, Bergen, Norway and Aberdeen.

In turn, this will enable RSIP to better serve its client needs around the world.

Daryl Lynch, commercial director Reef Subsea Integrated Projects, commented: “We are delighted to have secured this workscope with a prestigious client, Technip Norge AS.

“The Q1000 is an exceptional trencher, managed by experienced operators, which will provide added value to our client on the Bøyla Development project.”
