James Fisher Subsea Excavation completes latest Middle East project


JFSE continues to cement its reputation in the Middle East, with the completion of its latest project bringing cable and pipeline trenched in the region to 180kms in 2018.

As part of its Excavation Plus offering, the latest project executed by JFSE included 70kms of cable trenching and survey of 33mm fibre optic cables associated with the development of one of the world’s largest offshore producing fields.

Utilising its SP6000 tool with Launch and Recovery System (LARS) and the controlled flow excavation (CFE) specialist’s patented central jetting system, the team of JFSE experts successfully tackled the variable soil conditions by deploying equipment with a superior cutting ability at 300kPA.

Operations included providing tone generation at the platforms, a TSS cable tracker with altimeter, sub bottom profilers and Gemini multi-bean echo sounder to monitor trenching operations. JFSE also provided full as-built survey as part of the overall project deliverables.

Faisel Chaudry, JFSE’s regional director, said:

“The project had such variable soil conditions that cutting capability was key to delivering a successful outcome. We have once again demonstrated how developing and continually enhancing our patented jetting system, which significantly boosts the soil-cutting abilities of our excavators, benefits our clients.

By remaining at the forefront of technological advancements in the subsea excavation industry, we are generating time and cost efficiencies on projects that previously could not have been completed without these enhancements.”
