HOUSTON– The Petroleum Research Atlantic Canada has awarded INTECSEA Canada a contract to conduct Phase I of a joint industry project for “Development of a Trenching Systems for Subsea Pipelines, Flowlines, and Umbilicals in Ice Scour Environments.”

The goal of the trenching system is to trench deeper than current industry norms, trench in soils that are difficult and variable, trench in water depths of more than 300 m (985 ft), and to operate in harsh environments.

This first of four phases in the JIP aims to shortlist potential technology solution providers to conduct the Phase II detailed engineering and feasibility studies. The project is sponsored by the Hibernia, Terra Nova, White Rose, and Hebron projects offshore eastern Canada.
