General – Trenching
DeepOcean has successfully completed the burial of a fuel support pipeline in the US Gulf of Mexico on behalf of Genesis Energy after introducing its jet trenching system to the US market.
DeepOcean’s cutting-edge trenching system, UT-1, was utilised for the burial of a portion of the High Island A5 fuel support pipeline. The UT-1 delivered superior results on the designated six-inch pipeline sections, meeting burial requirements that included a three-mile section stretching across the Sabine Pass Fairway that called for the pipeline to be lowered to 10-foot top of product.
The trenching work was conducted from the Volantis subsea construction vessel, which conducted its first job in US waters.
“We are thrilled to introduce our UT-1 jet trenching system and the Volantis to the US market. The UT-1 is capable of drastically changing the trenching industry in US waters, providing our clients with the same, unparalleled results we have seen in other regions worldwide,” says Tony Stokes, president of DeepOcean’s US operation.
