After wrapping up her deepest work ever in the Gulf of Mexico and another subsequent pipelay project in the same region, the Express arrived this week in the Mediterranean Sea for work offshore of Israel.

After departing Helix ESG’s spoolbase in Ingleside, Texas, in April the Express set sail for Haifa, Israel where she is now preparing to begin SURF (Subsea Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines) work for Texas-based Noble Energy in the Noa field.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A unit of oil producer Occidental Petroleum Corp. has reached an $82 million deal to buy the South Texas site of former Naval Station Ingleside.

Port of Corpus Christi commissioners on Tuesday approved a contract with Oxy Ingleside Property Holdings for 815 acres.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports Oxy has about 90 days to close the sale.

Spokesman Mark Evans says Oxy filed a permit application last week with Texas environmental regulators to build a fractionator at a nearby Oxy Chemicals unit. The new property would be used to help support the chemical plant’s natural gas operations and exports.

Houston-based Canyon Supply and Logistics earlier this year failed to make a $19 million down payment for 187 acres of the former naval facility, which closed in 2010.

Marathon Oil has splashed out $750 million to acquire Houston-based private Paloma Partners II and its Eagle Ford assets.

The US independent will pay in cash for the acquisition, which is expected to close subject to approvals in the third quarter.

Paloma II owns roughly 17,000 net acres in the Eagle Ford shale play, primarily in Karnes and Live Oak counties.

Net production at the properties as of 1 April was around 7000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Paloma II’s principal shareholders are Paloma Resources, Encap Energy Capital Fund VII and Macquarie Americas Corporation.

Marathon Oil has previously flagged its intentions to hone in the Eagle Ford, telling the Howard Weil conference earlier this year it would ramp up activity in the oil window of the South Texas shale play.

The Eagle Ford is a key plank of the New York-listed outfit’s $4.82 billion capital expenditure budget for this year.

McDermott International, Inc. announced that its Malaysian affiliate Berlian McDermott Sdn. Bhd. was recently awarded a significant subsea contract for executing a deepwater engineering, procurement, construction, transportation, installation and commissioning project offshore Malaysia. The value of this contract is included in McDermott’s first quarter 2012 backlog.

The award is for the subsea infrastructure of the Siakap North – Petai (“SNP”) Development Project operated by Murphy Sabah Oil Co., Ltd. (“Murphy”), comprising rigid flowlines, flexible risers, an umbilical and subsea hardware and controls. The SNP field is located nearby the existing Kikeh field, northwest of Labuan Island, Malaysia, in waters 3,900 – 4,900 feet deep.

“Our subsea engineering expertise, fabrication track record at our Batam Island facility, state-of-the-art subsea construction vessels and understanding of the Malaysian market, contributed to this successful award,” said Stephen M. Johnson, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of McDermott. “We look forward to delivering the facilities for this important field development for Malaysia.”

The SNP field architecture consists of two rigid, insulated, pipe-in-pipe production flowlines, one rigid water injection flowline and one main umbilical system connecting eight new manifolds and subsea distribution units to existing riser slots on the Kikeh FPSO. The development calls for five water injection and eight production wells, drilled from the manifolds at each of the four drill center locations.

Detailed engineering and procurement for the project are underway, and fabrication of PLETs, jumpers and other installation aids is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2012. Following the infrastructure installation, McDermott will undertake a comprehensive System Integration Test of the subsea units and provide commissioning assistance. The project scope is scheduled to be completed by the third quarter of 2013.
