HOUSTON -- Deep Marine Technology’s (DMT) vessel DMT Emerald has installed a purpose-built suction pile, subsea manifold, and tree for a major oil company using a multi-purpose tower. The 35-x-15-ft (11-x-4.5-m) suction pile was over boarded and installed in under 12 hours.

The pile was landed at the desired location in 5,000 ft of water (1,524 m). The DMT Emerald crew also installed a manifold and set a tree. The manifold was installed onto the suction pile ahead of schedule and the tree was set via keel haul transfer to the multi-purpose tower, the company says.
