Delmar, on behalf of Kerr-McGee, completed multiple installations for the Independence Hub host facility. The first installation using HCLS included two subsea Christmas trees. Delmar successfully installed the 10,000 psi trees from an anchor handling vessel (AHV) in 7,950' of water, establishing a new world record for installation. Delmar also held the previous world record depth for installation work in 7,570' for the Shell Coulomb development.
