The subsidiaries of Oceaneering International have secured an integrated rig services contract covering the Khaleesi/Mormont and Samurai fields in the US Gulf of Mexico.

The Khaleesi and Mormont field developments are located in Green Canyon blocks 345, 389, 390, 434 and 478 while the Samurai development is located in Green Canyon Block 432.

The contract has been awarded to Oceaneering units Subsea Robotics (SSR) and Offshore Projects Group (OPG).

Under the contract, SSR and OPG will provide remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) with collocated ROV tooling and technicians, and remote positioning and metrology survey resources.

The contract also includes installation and workover control system (IWOCS) equipment and technicians.

Oceaneering said work under the contract is planned to commence in early 2021 and implement in 2022.

‎Oceaneering senior vice-president and chief commercial officer Earl Childress said: “The operator’s decision to contract our robotics and IWOCS services is a positive and anticipated response to our realigned segments, which allows us to deliver the integrated processes and products that enable consistent and efficient work scopes.”

The Khaleesi, Mormont and Samurai deepwater fields in the Green Canyon area will be tied-back to King’s Quay floating production system (FPS), which will be moored in Green Canyon Block 433.

Murphy Oil owns a 50% stake in King’s Quay FPS, while private equity firm Ridgewood Energy holds the remaining 50% interest.

Last year, Subsea 7 secured subsea installation services contract from Murphy Oil pertaining to the Samurai, Khaleesi, and Mormont developments.
