Saipem Jack / St. Malo Pipeline Support Foundations

More Detailed Scope of Work:

Delmar Systems, Inc. was awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction, and installation (EPC) contract for the detailed design and fabrication of five (5) suction pile foundations to support an extended length of free-span export pipeline.

The free span rectification required flexibility in design and installation to allow a single campaign installation without the added complexity and cost of mobilization for a survey campaign for metrology measurements and equipment placement.

The suction pile foundation proved advantageous due to the robustness of base while allowing maximum flexibility in the installation / hook-up phase of the foundations and support structures. Critical to the plan was Delmar’s ability to ensure schedule and effectiveness of the final solution to ensure the pipeline span was secure and safe for first oil start-up and long-term continuous production operations for the life of the field.
