Ekofisk 3 March
The excavating, needed to permit access to the pipe, encountered a problem in that the walls of the hole kept falling in. It was necessary to install a steel walled coffer dam to make it safe for the divers to work in the excavation. Two clump weights on fine wires can be seen, one in the immediate foreground and further down the pipe line toward the platform. These two “Taut Wires” enable the ship to hold station over the work site
