SAFANIYA 2 trenching project


In October 2014, Louis Dreyfus TravOcean completed a 115 kV submarine power composite cable trenching project on the Safaniya 2 oil field for Mc Dermott and Saudi Aramco as final client.

Louis Dreyfus TravOcean’s 30t trencher crawler fitted with a 1.3 m cutting wheel has been mobilised onboard the INT406 cable installation barge and 7.4 km of submarine cable have been successfully protected in hard soil conditions (Calcarenite) between the shore and -7.5 m water depth LAT.
