Perma Ballast® for Gravity Based Structures

BTI: Experienced, Versatile, Efficient


  • Gravity based production platforms sit on the ocean floor and act as collection, processing and distribution centers for hydrocarbons.

  • Perma Ballast® is an ideal solution for overcoming the natural buoyancy of these structures.

  • These platforms can be filled with high density concrete or heavy weight concrete.

  • Perma Ballast® is also a cost effective material for use in gravity anchoring systems or gravity boxes where subsea conditions do not allow the use of traditional anchoring systems such as suction pilings.
