Santa Fe Diving Services Awarded Contract To Provide RCV And Crew

Santa Fe Diving Services, Inc.

of Houma, La., has been awarded a contract by Montreal Micoperi J.V. to provide a remote-controlled underwater vehicle and a crew of operators to assist in the installation of two oil-production platforms off Brazil for the government oil agency, Petrobras.

Thomas M. Angel, vice president and manager of the diving company, said a new remotecontrolled unit known as the RCV-150 will be used on the project. The vehicle is equipped with a manipulator that will operate 4-inch emergency valves and cross flood valves to maintain proper buoyancy of the platforms as they are lowered to the seabed. The unit will survey the ocean bottom before and after the installation.

The platforms Enchova and Cherne are in 115 and 143 meters (377 and 469 feet) of water, respectively.

Both platforms are in the Campos Basin area on the Continental Shelf off the State of Rio de Janerio.

Mr. Angel also announced that a Brazilian company, Petroserv Servicos e Equipamentos Ltda, has been contracted to represent Santa Fe Diving Services for future activities in that country.

Santa Fe Diving Services, headquartered in Houma, is a subsidiary of Santa Fe International Corporation.
