HOUMA, Louisiana – Crossmar has completed work associated with a pipeline abandonment project in the Gulf of Mexico. The company used its new DP-3 multi-purpose barge, Crossmar 21, for the job.

The barge served as a receiving and collection platform for the pipeline abandonment in 500 ft (1,640 m) of water. The client required a DP vessel to perform the work to alleviate setting anchors in an area where mudslides had caused significant damage to surrounding pipelines, according to Crossmar.

Crossmar 21 was used to transport separation equipment and storage tanks to location and was required to stay on station for several days while the pigging operation was under way. An ROV alongside provided hook-up, valve operations, and monitoring of the interface hoses that ran from the seafloor to the separation equipment on the back deck of the barge.

Crossmar says the project was completed successfully and to the client’s satisfaction.
