Morrison Ramps Up Pipeline Lowering Offerings

Pipeline lowering has become an increasingly necessary activity for companies across the US. Lowering is required to secure the integrity of pipeline systems in the face of extreme weather events and to clear right-of-way for deepening of shipping channels. 

Morrison brings its over 40 years of experience to pipeline projects across the US in every environmental condition from coastal and inland to river and shallow water. Morrison has amassed a team of subject matter experts that safely plan, build and deliver quality construction services for oil & gas infrastructure. 

Crews have successfully completed projects in pipeline installation construction, maintenance and integrity, and decommissioning, backed by a world class, reliable fleet of barges.


Morrison’s CM-12 Jet Barge is a 120’ x 30’ all purpose jetting barge that effectively services most inland areas due to its 4’ shallow draft. This vessel can jet to 25’ below the waterline. The Jet Claw can be mounted in the centerline moon-pool or outboard of the barge.


The Morrison team consists of some of the industry’s best, providing creative and pragmatic solutions for our clients, always backed by confidence in the field. Our depth of competency extends from our project management and field leadership to our back office support departments, which include Health, Safety, Environmental & Quality, Supply Chain, Logistics and Proposals. Dependable, sustainable, nimble and flexible, our team provides the skills and technical expertise to streamline processes and meet shutdown schedules.
