Deepwater retrofits 69 structures in Black Bay.
Deepwater Corrosion Services, Inc. recently retrofitted 69 shallow water wellhead platforms, gas lift manifolds, and production platforms in Helis’ Black Bay field. Due to the shallow average water depth (approximately 10 feet) and shoaling, a special retrofit system was needed. Deepwater’s RetroLink suspended anode system was perfect for the job; the field’s life was extended for 5 years without the need for underwater intervention. To protect pipelines and risers, custom continuity jumpers were installed to create a blanket of CP coverage for the entire field.
