As a positive sign for North Sea development, subsea services provider Rever Offshore has deployed all four of the company’s vessels since the start of April, 2019.
The Rever fleet, which includes the saturation dive support vessels Rever Topaz, Rever Sapphire and Rever Polaris along with the heavy construction support vessel Normand Clipper, was fully employed for several key clients on projects within the UK sector of the North Sea.
The Rever Polaris, which has recently completed an eight-week dry dock, and the Normand Clipper, have been working simultaneously on a large subsea decommissioning scope recovering flexible flowlines and various subsea structures. Prior to this, the Normand Clipper was configured in construction mode where she successfully completed a multiple flexible flowline installation project.
The Rever Topaz has been working on saturation diving IRM scopes and has now commenced a long term commitment in the southern sector of the North Sea. The Rever Sapphire, having also focused on IRM scopes including sat diving and has now changed mode on to ROV survey and inspection works.
Barry Macleod, Rever CEO, said: “I am delighted to see our Rever Offshore fleet all fully operational again across all the service lines we provide; IRM, construction and decommissioning. We have exceeded expectations around vessel utilisation for the early part of the season and the market outlook is strengthening and showing positive signs of continued recovery which is encouraging, not just for Rever but for the wider industry too”.
