THE HEAVY lift and tie-ins project being carried out by Subsea 7 for the Gorgon project made significant progress during the second quarter, the company has said.

“In (the second quarter of 2014) the Gorgon heavy lift and tie-ins project contributed significant revenue although margin recognition was limited due to the relative stage of completion of the offshore campaign,” Subsea 7 said in its half year report.

The contract had contributed significantly to Subsea 7’s Asia Pacific revenue during the quarter, company chief executive Jean Cahuzac said.

The news came after Fugro wrapped up a contract to provide the company with survey services to support the heavy lift and tie-ins contract earlier this year.

Fugro used its Rem Etive multi-role, dynamic positioning survey vessel and a series of deepwater work class ROVs to carry out the contract.

Fugro installed and calibrated LBL arrays, in parallel with spoolpiece metrology operations on a 24 hour basis on the Gorgon and Jansz-Io fields in water depths ranging from 200 metres to 1,350 metres.

It also provided specialist survey personnel and equipment.
