Work for the project will be carried out in various Proserv subsea service centres and technology hubs around the world, reinforcing the company’s strong inter-regional capability.

“This is a significant win for the company that highlights the strength of our technical and engineering expertise as well as our market-leading status in the subsea controls and communications field,” said David Lamont, Proserv CEO.

The design and manufacture of the subsea electronics modules (SEMs) and subsea control modules (SCMs) will be carried out by Proserv’s team of subsea experts in Great Yarmouth, UK, with Proserv’s Trondheim facility in Norway providing technical support.

Final testing, servicing and the integration of equipment will be carried out at Proserv’s new dedicated controls facility in Houston, USA.

The systems will be delivered to the client in a phased approach throughout 2015 and 2016 in line with key project milestones.

Proserv has a long-standing relationship with Hess Corporation and over the past three years has secured work with the operator which, including this latest award, is estimated to be worth around USD 35m. These activities included providing subsea controls equipment and services for Hess Corporation’s Tubular Bells field, a fast-track project that has just announced first production, and Hess Gulf of Mexico brownfield projects.

“Proserv has already worked with Hess Corporation on several projects and the award of this contract is testament to the strength of our relationship and their trust in our ability to deliver robust technology solutions and services on time and to the highest standards,” added Lamont.

“We look forward to working with Hess Corporation in the successful delivery of this project and would also like to congratulate them on the expeditious production of first oil from the Tubular Bells development.”
