SONOCO Deepwater Operations

We've been involved in several deepwater firsts in the Gulf:

  • Shell Cognac, the deepest structure ever in its day
  • Mahogany, Phillips Petroleum's first deepwater project
  • The Oryx (Kerr McGee) Neptune, the world's first Spar
  • Galley redesign for the RB Falcon/CONOCO Pathfinder, the new generation dynamically-positioned drillship

We're part of the Shell Ursa team, and have been since it was on the drawing boards. From design through integration in Curacao, N.A., to installation in MC 809 - including the 27 day wet tow - SONOCO has been an integral part of the deployment of the world's largest TLP.
