Aberdeen-based InterMoor, a member of subsea group Acteon, has announced a new deepwater deal with China Offshore Oil Engineering Company (Cooec), a subsidiary of China National Offshore Oil Corporation (Cnooc International).
The deal will see InterMoor install deepwater mooring systems for the Liuhua 16-2 and Lingshui 17-2 floating production facilities in the South China Sea.
InterMoor, who are headquartered in Houston, Texas, will provide project management, review and verification of designs and installation engineering and offshore preparation and execution.
The projects will be managed from InterMoors Singapore office.
Simon Gatcliffe, InterMoor’s vice president Asia Pacific, said: “It is an honor to be awarded such important work.
“This contract bears witness to InterMoor’s long standing relationship with COOEC and track record in deepwater, permanent mooring projects.”
In 2014, InterMoor announced its long term plans in the UK with a million-pound Aberdeen office investment.
The building was constructed with the view of allowing the company a more permanent base for its operations in Europe, Asia and Africa whilst also providing storage facilities for equipment.
The three acre site situated in the Aberdeen harbour zone allows for easy access to the city’s vessel berths for the 20 permanent staff situated at the facility.
