Shallow Water Pipeline Installation Project Completed in Atchafalaya Bay
Morrison’s Marine division recently completed a pipeline installation project for Apache in the Atchafalaya Bay area, where we laid approximately 15 miles of a dual 12″ pipelines and 4 miles of a 20″ pipeline. There were multiple unique aspects of this project, one of which was our ability to perform mid-point tie ins, eliminating several dozen flanges from the system.
The project was located in a wildlife management area in water depths as shallow as 1 foot and was completed without environmental impact. Also, per Apache’s request, crew members were recognized for their commitment to safety.
Congratulations to the entire team for a job well done!
