Noble Clyde Boudreaux Mooring Supervision in Brazil
Objective: Provide the structural foundation for a Pipeline End Termination (PLET) holdback and permanent installation support for the provided suction pile during one of the most challenging deep-water projects in the region
Parque das Conchas (BC-10) lies in approximately 1,780 meters (5,840 feet) of water. Shell has a 50% interest in the project and is the operator.
This location, off the coast of Brazil, represents one of the most challenging deep-water projects in the region. The unexpected thermal movements of an infield flowline required the installation of an additional restraint to limit the Pipeline End Termination (PLET) movement and jumper loads.
Due to a solid reputation innovating unique solutions for challenging situations, Delmar was asked to provide the structural foundation for the PLET holdback and permanent installation support for the suction pile provided. Using site-specific engineering and equipment the pile was permanently connected to the PLET.
