Subsea specialist services provider Rever Offshore has announced the completion of a contract secured from oil and gas operator Serica Energy.

This is the second campaign undertaken by Rever Offshore for the independent North Sea oil and gas operator within a framework agreement that commenced in 2018.

The work scope of the contract took place in the Rhum field of the North Sea. It was completed in late May.

Rhum is a gas condensate field producing from two subsea wells namely, R1 and R2. The field is tied into the Bruce facilities via a 45km pipeline.

Serica owns a 50% interest in the Rhum field.

The 14-day campaign saw the company deploy the multi-purpose offshore construction vessel ‘Rever Polaris’.

Rever Polaris carried out electrical diagnostics as part of a multi-year campaign of preventive maintenance on the subsea cable network.

According to Rever Offshore, subsequent testing took place through the Rever Polaris and Serica-operated Bruce platform.

In May, Serica Energy signed a contract for the provision of a drillship for the intervention work on the Rhum-3 (R3) well.

In December last year, Serica Energy’s subsidiary Serica Energy UK received a new UK petroleum licence P2501 under blocks 3/24c and 3/29c, which is located adjacent to the Rhum field.

In October, Serica Energy received a renewed licence and secondary sanctions assurance from the US Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regarding the Rhum field.
