Energy technology services company Proserv has secured two major contract wins in the Gulf of Mexico worth a combined $17m
The deals with Noble Energy and Talos Energy will see Proserv carry out work at the operators’ respective Gunflint and Phoenix Field Expansion developments.
Two deepwater wells will be controlled at Noble Energy’s Gunflint field in the Mississippi Canyon area – around 70 miles from the Louisiana coast. Its fibre optic communication systems will allow high-speed network communication from 6100ft (1859m) below the surface. Proserv’s team of subsea controls experts in Great Yarmouth will be responsible for the manufacturing of the seven subsea control modules for both developments. Final testing, servicing and the integration of equipment will be carried out at Proserv’s dedicated controls facility in Houston.
David Lamont, chief executive at Proserv, said: “These are significant wins for the company that highlights the strength of our technical and engineering expertise as well as our market-leading status in the subsea controls and communications field.
“We have expanded our business considerably in recent years through both organic growth and strategic acquisition whilst building a reputation for delivering high-value and integrated technology systems on time and within budget. We look forward to working with both Talos Energy and Noble Energy in the successful delivery of these projects.”
A “shoo-before-shooting” policy to control pigeons has been described by a leading Norfolk farmer as “completely bonkers”.
