Angel focuses CTC on Asia

Former Perth engineer Tony Inglis was back in town last week following up on a local contract won by his UK-based CTC Marine Projects Ltd.

Mr Inglis is managing director of CTC, now part of Norway’s DeepOcean group.

Last month, the subsea service provider announced it had secured a $25 million contract with Woodside Energy Ltd as part of the Angel Gas Project, offshore from Dampier.

CTC’s contract includes the installation of a 51 kilometre power cable linking the existing North Rankin A platform with the new Angel Platform.

In addition, CTC said three cables would be installed to connect the Angel Platform to adjacent subsea production trees.

Mr Inglis joined CTC headquarters in Darlington, in north-east England, in mid 2006, having spent the previous six years as general manager of Clough Ltd’s UK operations, based largely out of Aberdeen, Scotland.

Before that he had gained more than 20 years’ business and operational experience in subsea construction markets, having been involved in establishing and managing a range of regional and international business units with Perth-based Clough.

Mr Inglis said CTC was looking to expand its operations in this region.

“CTC has a strong strategic interest in building its project work in Western Australia, especially given the growth of the offshore construction market in the region,” he said.

Last year, CTC opened a satellite office in Singapore as part of its push into Asia, diversifying its base from the North Sea where its main activity has taken place.

The Angel installation is scheduled to take place between January and July 2008 and will be managed by CTC and Woodside teams based in the UK and Australia.

CTC claims to own and operate the largest, most comprehensive and technically advanced fleet of trenching equipment in the world. Apart from oil and gas, it also works in the telecommunications, military and utilities sectors of the offshore construction industry.

Last year, the private UK company was taken over by DeepOcean, a subsea service provider operating a fleet of support, survey and remote operated vessels.
