A collaborative project with Ocean Installer and Petro Services working together in West Africa for the first time.
Petro Services and its main Subcontractor Ocean Installer today announced they have been awarded a contract from TotalEnergies EP Angola and it’s Block 17 partners, to execute an umbilical recovery and reinstallation scope on the Pazflor FPSO. This is Ocean Installer’s second participation on TotalEnergies EP Angola projects this year, while Petro Services have other ongoing long-term contracts with TotalEnergies in Angola.
Petro Services will be in charge of the project management activities for the project and execute in-country support operations.

The fact that TotalEnergies again places production critical operations with us, represents the trust our clients have in our abilities"
