MARLOW, UKFoundOcean has completed a contract for Subsea 7 in the Irish Sea offshore northwest England.

This involved providing infill grouting services to strengthen a tubular member of theDPPA platform in Morecambe Bay.

A horizontal steel member at -7 m (23 ft) elevation on the platform was filled with ordinary Portland cement grout to give it additional residual strength. The member was 27 m (88 ft) long with an ID of 0.6 m (1.97 ft), requiring a total grout volume of 7.6 cu m (268 cu ft).
