Securing Partnerships Through Quality Execution
MORRISON’S Diving Services Division builds and maintains subsea infrastructure. Whether its greenfield pipeline construction or modifications and additions on existing systems in brownfield pipeline construction, our team of experts plan and execute projects according to engineered procedures designed with the highest regard and accountability for personnel safety and environmental protection.
MORRISON’s clients are predominately Oil and Gas Upstream Producers and Midstream Pipeline Transportation Companies. Other clients include EPCIC subsea contractors, EPCIC renewable energy contractors, salvage contractors, structural and subsea engineering firms, project management firms, and government entities with facilities that are located in a marine environment.
Clients count on MORRISON to perform new installations, as well as, perform inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) services on their platforms and Subsea Pipelines. Our dive teams are highly experienced, trained and certified to build and maintain the infrastructure on offshore platforms that require work below the surface to assist with pipeline construction at the seabed and along pipeline routes.
A sampling of projects that MORRISON’s Diving Division typically perform include:
- Seabed on bottom Stability of Pipelines and Structures;
- Pipeline Inspection, repair and maintenance, (IRM);
- Pipeline Tie-ins;
- Pipeline integrity;
- Pipeline Burial Assistance;
- Structural inspection, repair, and maintenance, (IRM)
- Leak prevention;
- Salvage inspection and recovery operations.
Whether using personnel in zero or near zero visibility, diving with surface air, mixed gases, or saturation dives at extreme water depths or using unmanned remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), all activities are monitored and directed from the surface in an environment under rigid controls based on the highest quality diving safety standards.
MORRISON can either dispatch divers from its company-owned barges and dive vessels or travel with portable systems and perform dive excursions direct from client provided fixed platforms, drilling rigs, floating production facilities, drilling facilities, or other construction support vessels.
Our operations group maintains surface gear onboard company owned vessels and performs saturation diving support when needed.
