Devil Creek Development Project
In 2011, SapuraAcergy worked with Empress Marine to carry out the pre-lay route survey for the offshore pipeline associated with the Devil Creek Development Project for major client Apache Energy.
The scope of work included surveying the route using multibeam survey and collection operations, together with analysis of data onboard the vessel. Data is used to identify coral outcrops and unknown submerged objects, including unexploded ordinance along the pre-lay pipeline route. The survey ran from near the shoreline at a depth of three metres out to the Stag Platform – some 65km off Dampier.
On completion of bathymetry data collection, detailed ROV inspection was made of any unknown coral outcrops or unidentified objects, and video records captured.
