Accurate stone dumping protects Deep Panuke facilities offshore Canada

Offshore staff

BREDA, the Netherlands – Tideway has completed an offshore installation program for EnCana’s Deep Panuke gas development offshore Nova Scotia, eastern Canada.

Under the $14.4-million contract, Tideway deployed for the first time its Inclined Fallpipe System (IFPS).

Deep Panuke is 250 km (155 mi) southeast of Halifax, in an area prone to high waves and strong seabed currents. First gas from the development is due to be transported this year to Goldboro on the mainland via a subsea pipeline.

Tideway was responsible for the stone fill on the seabed to stabilize the gas platform and to protect pipelines in the area.

Using the new IFPS and its 50-m (164-ft) long fall pipe, Tideway says it achieved stone fills with an accuracy of up to 0.1 m (0.32 ft).
