HelixQ7000 Aerials24Helix Alliance, the Louisiana-based subsidiary of Helix Energy Solutions Group, has been awarded a 39-well decommissioning contract for the Gulf of Mexico shelf.

Owen Kratz, Helix’s President and Chief Executive Office, said, “This award demonstrates Helix’s position as the preeminent company for full-field decommissioning in the Gulf of Mexico shelf, along with our other services supporting the full life cycle of offshore fields, following the expansion of our industry-leading decommissioning services with our acquisition of Alliance last year.”

The scope of work includes the plug and abandonment of 39 wells, 15 pipelines and seven structures. Helix Alliance plans to utilise the EPIC Hedron heavy lift derrick barge for structure removals, lifeboats for P&A activities, the Triton Explorer dive support vessel for pipeline abandonments and multiple Helix Alliance OSVs throughout the campaign.
