SINGAPORE/HOUSTON – EMAS AMC says the Lewek Constellation has set an industry pipelay record in the US Gulf of Mexico in 7,368 ft (2,246 m) of water during sea trials.

EMAS AMC’s flagship subsea construction vessel was in preparation to execute three subsea tieback projects forNoble Energy when it performed its final pipelay trial in the US GoM.  During the deployment of the 1.9-mi (3.2-km), 16-in. diameter, 28-mm wall thickness pipeline, complete with the second end pipeline end termination, the tension recorded was 632 metric tons (696 tons), rendering this the highest tension ever experienced in the history of rigid reeled-lay operations, the company said.
