USA: Helix to Build New Semi-Sub Well Intervention Vessel
Owen Kratz, Helix’s Chairman and CEO, stated, “We are leveraging our market and technological leadership in subsea well intervention along with the proven success of the Q4000 platform to satisfy an increasing market interest for specialized deepwater well intervention services. We have previously indicated that we intend to address this growing market by delivering new capacity and will continue to expand this business segment further.”
Helix has completed the detailed engineering for the new vessel and expects to commence construction in the near future.
The Q4000 (image) is a unique multi-purpose vessel designed to operate in depths up to 3,048 metres of water – a stable platform for a wide variety of tasks, including slimbore drilling, slimbore completion and decommissioning well intervention.
