Water depth: 3646 ft / 1111 m

The Ocean Valiant worked the EAB 602 Nansen location and required the replacement of a subsea tree. Delmar used parking pile technology to allow the rig to park the existing 4x2 production tree and allow the AHV to install the new 5x2 production tree with an immediate recovery of the wet parked tree. The time savings by using the parking pile technology allowed for efficient mobilization of assets and minimized the rig time associated with the equipment recovery and reinstallation.
