Hallin Awarded $8-Million West Africa Project

Singapore, (May 11, 2010) — Integrated subsea contractor Hallin Marine is mobilizing its vessel, Ullswater, after winning a saturation diving contract offshore Angola.

The DP2 Ullswater, equipped with saturation and air diving systems, a Hallin C-ROV and all personnel, will repair a 16-inch pipeline and carry out inspections on various platforms.

Operatec, an Angolan company, and Superior Energy Services have been performing diving services under a long term maintenance contract since mid 2009. The Ullswater saturation diving project is an extension of this ongoing maintenance contract.

Winning the contract is an indication of how Superior's acquisition of Hallin earlier this year is starting to benefit both companies.

The contract, with a combined value of nearly $8 million, in water depths of up to 110 meters, will start almost immediately and is expected to last for up to two months.

Rik Zwinkels, Hallin's Managing Director of East Division, said, "We are pleased to have won this contract. It shows the positive benefits of being part of the Superior family and being able to utilize its network of companies and contacts to benefit the whole group."

"I'm sure that this, our first project offshore Angola, will be a success, and we are looking forward to working with our local partners."
