Heerema Marine Contractors Nederland B.V. was contracted by BP America Production Co. for the installation of six deepwater pipelines and steel catenary risers (SCR). In turn, the Bayou Companies of New Iberia, LA was contracted to insulate and fabricate the pipe that will stand up for years in what is one of the world's most inhospitable environments. The pipeline lies at a working depth somewhere between 6,000 and 7,000 feet where the pressure is more than 3,000 psi and the water temperature is 4 degrees C (37 degrees F).
