    Projects and Operations // May 6, 2010

    Subsea 7 has announced the completion of the Marathon Droshky project in the Gulf of Mexico – the first project to be delivered utilising its new North American spoolbase at Port Isabel, Texas.

    The project, managed from Subsea 7’s Houston office, involved the fabrication and installation of two 8in flowlines totalling 58km (36 miles) for Marathon Oil Corporation's Droshky field development. 

    Pipeline production took place at the Port Isabel Spoolbase between June and October 2009 and offshore operations commenced afterwards with the arrival of Seven Oceans, a pipelay vessel, to start spooling the first of three offshore pipelay campaigns.
