C-Innovation (C-I), an affiliate of Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO) and its family of companies, has won a three-year contract from an energy investor in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico known as BP Exploration & Production (BP).

C-I will provide subsea construction, inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) and logistics services in the Gulf of Mexico as part of the latest deal.

The company noted that Port Fourchon in Louisiana is serving as the home port for the development.

"This is a very large and significant contract for C-I and it helps solidify our reputation as a true, single source for subsea solutions."

The deal is expected to integrate ECO’s extensive fleet of multipurpose platform supply and well intervention vessels with C-I’s ROV, tooling, project management and engineering services.

Works outlined under the initiative include jumper and subsea tree installations, underwater facility inspections in lieu of dry-docking, the commissioning of new assets and general field support operations.

C-I Subsea Division manager David Sheetz said: “This is a very large and significant contract for C-I and it helps solidify our reputation as a true, single source for subsea solutions with the backing and support of the diverse family of companies within the ECO group.

“C-I’s ability to offer a complete suite of services allows clients to have a single point of contact for all projects, which makes budgeting easier, saving time, as well as money.”

C-I’s advanced ROV capabilities offer a broad spectrum of support to subsea construction projects, in addition to also drilling, intervention, maintenance and heavy lift assignments.

The company is headquartered in Mandeville, Louisiana, and was originally founded in 2007 in order to meet the growing demand for advanced ROV operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

C-I has supported a number of major marine oil and gas operators worldwide since its establishment.
