Construction Support

SPO’s diverse range of vessels are ideal for supporting a variety of construction project scopes. Over the years, SPO has played different roles when sub-contracted to key contractors for offshore construction projects for our clients in different parts of the world. Our vessels and crew are equipped with the capabilities and technical expertise to manage complex construction scopes.

Some of SPO’s construction support services include:

  • Transportation of construction materials from base to offshore
  • Pipe/cable-lay support
  • Support of offshore installations and subsea field development

Some notable projects include:

This year, two of SPO’s L Class vessels were supporting a large EPCI contractor on the KG-D6 R-Cluster subsea field development for five months, in the Krishna Godavari basin, located off the east coast of India.

The campaign included the client’s piggy-back pipe-lay in S-lay mode in approximately 1,300 metres water depth and the installation of PLETs and manifolds to water depths of approximately 1,900 metres. A large majority of the pipe and construction support for the pipe-lay vessel was provided by these two large deck space (900m2) PSVs, namely, the Pacific Liberty and the Pacific Legacy. For approximately eight months in 2018, three of SPO’s P Class vessels worked with the same large EPCI contractor on one of the largest fields owned by Saudi Aramco.
