DOF Subsea Canada has been awarded the first SURF project for the Skandi Constructor from VAALCO ENERGY. DOF Subsea will perform subsea construction and installation services to support the subsea reconfiguration associated with the replacement of the existing Floating Production, Storage and Offloading unit (“FPSO”) with a Floating Storage and Offloading vessel (“FSO”) at the Etame field, offshore Gabon. Engineering and design work has commenced with subsea work forecasted to begin in July and is expected to be completed by September 2022.
The Skandi Constructor was upgraded in 2021 with a 250-ton AHC crane and outfitted with 2 new XLXc ROV systems and is currently working in Trinidad under multiple contracts managed by DOF Subsea USA performing commissioning and IMR tasks before returning to the North Sea for other commitments in Q2.
