ROVOP will deploy a work class ROV onboard Energean’s owned field support vessel, the Energean Star. The Star is a newly converted platform supply vessel (PSV) designed to carry out a range of support tasks for Energean.

Following a safe and successful mobilisation in Cyprus, the vessel has  transited to the strategically important Karish gas field, located approximately 75km offshore Israel in 1750 meters water depth.

The ROV system and offshore team will carry out a range of tasks from general ROV support to subsea survey and intervention works to support the maintenance and further development of the field.

Mark Gilmartin, ROVOP’s Business Development Director, said: “We are thrilled to have been awarded this contract, highlighting our capability to support our clients no matter their location, task or scopes. The award is a real milestone contract and reflects our strategic approach to breaking into the field support ROV market.

“It has been an outstanding start to the year for ROVOP. It is a testament to our people’s expertise and professionalism, our global reach and unrivalled capability across the complete project lifecycle that we continue to go from strength to strength.”

Lenas Mylonas, Energean Head of Subsea said: “We are delighted to be working with ROVOP on this long-term contract. ROVOP’s dedicated focus on standalone ROV services was a key reason behind our decision to award this contract. Energean expect a high quality, responsive contractor able to quickly change priorities, in a safe manner, and we believe ROVOP are the best positioned company to be able to do this and support us in our operations. We’re looking forward to a long and successful relationship with the team as we both maintain and grow the Karish Gas field.”
