Subsea protection frames

Subsea oil & gas pipelines are vulnerable to mechanical damage especially when laid through fishing grounds, in tidal zones or over undulating deep-sea terrain.

Depending on the situation and costs, proven methods for protection are available including the installation of gabions, trenching, burying and covering with deep-sea protection frames.
