A month-long in­stal­la­tion project at BHP Bil­li­ton’s Pyre­nees Ven­ture has gone off with­out a hitch, prompt­ing stake­hold­ers to tip more work in the fu­ture will be based out of Ex­mouth.

The job in­volved sub­sea tieback ac­tiv­i­ties on the Stickle 9 and Tan­gle­head wells about 45km off the North West Cape. Fu­gro TSM brought the 137m con­struc­tion ves­sel South­ern Ocean over for the project, with Base Ma­rine pro­vid­ing ser­vices dur­ing its stay. Base Ma­rine chief ex­ec­u­tive Nick Tutty said the project had been a good way to show­case the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of in­dus­try in Ex­mouth.

Our client summed up the ex­pe­ri­ence by say­ing it was a flaw­less ser­vice de­liv­ery,” he said. “The sup­ply base and our lo­cal ves­sel op­er­a­tors Bhag­wan and Gun Ma­rine took the job in their stride and com­pleted the project with­out a hitch. Base Ma­rine, and Ex­mouth in gen­eral, are well placed to ser­vice fu­ture oil and gas projects as they come on­line.”
