As a specialised trenching contractor, DeepOcean can provide decommissioning of pipelines by trenching/ burial. This involves lowering the pipeline into the seabed using our range of trenching equipment.
DeepOcean undertook its first decommissioning project back in 2007 using a plough to decommission a concrete weight pipeline in the North Sea. Since then, DeepOcean has expanded its offering to include the decommissioning of other subsea structures by removal.
The AMP500 plough can decommission a pipeline by burial.
