ALE was awarded a major steel catenary riser (SCR) and umbilical pull-in contract by Subsea 7 USA.

The scope of work included in this contract is for engineering, procurement, fabrication and offshore pull-in operations. ALE will start the engineering phase of this project immediately with offshore operations to follow in the first quarter of 2020.

The contracted offshore SCR and umbilical pull-in operations will be performed at Mississippi Canyon (MC), on an existing production facility located south of New Orleans, LA in approximately 6,234 feet of water. ALE will utilize their global expertise in heavy lifting to provide Subsea 7 and their client with a unique and lightweight equipment solution to pull dynamic loads topping 369-tons.

“Being awarded this project by Subsea 7 demonstrates the depth of knowledge and competencies held by the team within ALE Offshore Services,” said Heath Jones, vice president of sales, ALE. ”As with most SCR and umbilical pull-in project scopes, we were faced with the limits of space, equipment weights vs. operational capabilities, contingencies and redundancies, and most importantly the health and safety of every person and the environment.”
