Caley to Develop MARS Deployment and Overboarding System

05 December 2012

Offshore handling systems specialist, Caley Ocean Systems has been awarded a contract by Cameron to develop a new deployment and overboarding system for the MARS (Multiple Application Re-injection System) for deepwater scale squeeze applications. The modular handling system will allow the MARS hardware to be more easily deployed onto the seabed from smaller vessels.

The MARS system is used to improve oil recovery as part of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in mature basins, brownfield developments and greenfield projects. Caley is supplying a standalone handling system comprising a high performance spooler, hydraulic power unit (HPU) and control station. It will use a flexible riser to deploy the MARS system, and feature Caley's proven clamping technology to reduce fatigue loading on the riser.
