Shell awards Canyon Offshore Glider field burial contractContracts, Tenders and Rates // February 20, 2004
The contract work scope includes the trenching and backfill burial of the 6.625-inch (~8 inch OD) Glider flowline to enhance the flow assurance properties of the line. The approximately 32,000-foot line will be buried in 3000 fsw at the Brutus TLP end, and 3,300 fsw at the G4 well location. This makes the Glider project the deepest flowline burial project in the world.
The project is scheduled to begin and to be completed in February. Canyon Offshore will utilize its new T-750 Super-Trencher deployed from the M/V Northern Canyon to perform the trenching and burial operations, and a TRITON XLS work class ROV to conductsurvey and post burial survey tasks. In addition, Canyon will also provide all the pre-engineering, survey, project engineering, project management and ROV support associated with the work.
