BP Cook Inlet Submarine Pipeline Re-Abandonment

InterAct managed the “re-abandonment” of a 10-inch oil submarine pipeline following the discovery of a leak from a 28-year old previously abandoned pipeline.  InterAct managed fabricators, equipment vendors, and diving contractors using a multiple vessel spread to attach an underwater pig launcher complete with barge mounted pump skids, gel tanks, and hose reel. Offshore diving and pumping operations were conducted in the central Cook Inlet region known for swift currents and high tidal variations. InterAct provided technical and management support to BP during multi-agency briefing/planning meetings, which included Cook Inlet Spill Response Inc., Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Regional Citizens Advisory Group, BP Incident Management Team, and U.S. Coast Guard
