Tony Stokes, Director of Asia Pacific for DeepOcean, states, “We look forward to a successful trenching campaign and are very pleased to cooperate with Subsea 7 on such a momentous project.  The award for the Gorgon Project demonstrates the demand for DeepOcean’s trenching technology building on our extensive track record with Subsea 7 globally and further complements our most recent trenching projects in Australia.”
