Mariner Oil Platform Removal
January , 2011
Global provided saturation diving services aboard the DSV Ocean Carrier to assist with the completion of removal of Platform B, a hurricane damaged, 8 leg fixed platform in block EI 292. The upper package had been previously removed as well as the wells plugged and abandoned. Currently, portions of the lower jacket including the lower half of four legs and the majority of the interconnecting members at one end of the jacket remain. The highest point of the debris is at 170 fsw with two of the legs bent over and protruding into the ocean floor, elevation 220 fsw. Portions of the structure that interfered with the P&A operation were placed in piles on bottom. GDS has been contracted to remove all the remaining structure as well as remaining debris on bottom.
