EMERGENCY RESPONSE ASSET RECOVERY (ERBOP)

In recent years, several companies have lost a key asset such as a blow-out preventer (BOP) or riser from a rig or vessel, to the seabed. An incident like this can trigger a cascade of negative consequences, leading to both operational and financial disaster for the operating company.

We have successfully completed more than 40 successful seabed impacted asset recoveries. These operations were completed in some of the most inhospitable subsea locations over the past 20 years, and our track record speaks for itself. Our team is on standby 24/7/365 we have a dedicated emergency number and are in a position to respond with the utmost urgency to your enquiry.

The vast range of subsea intervention and excavation tools operated by the Marin Group of companies have been responsible for numerous successful recovery projects.

Through its very nature, the loss of a Client’s asset to the seabed in deep water is an unplanned event. The speed with which an effective recovery plan is put in motion can save the Client from mounting and significant negative financial implications through loss of rig/vessel/barge day-rates and future contracted work. Failure to recover the lost equipment may leave a rig, barge, or vessel out of commission for lengthy periods while equipment is replaced, lead times can be up to 4 years for replacements. This paper aims to share some of the lessons gained through experience, addressing key planning issues and the unique value of the Marin Group’s Experience and Equipment for such recovery projects.
