Presents results of an underwater pile driving test conducted at South Marsh Island Block 130, offshore Louisiana. A 24-inch diameter tubular pile was driven to 310 feet penetration with a submerged hydraulic hammer. The hammer drove the pile top from a position 33 feet above water to a point 175 feet below water. The test was performed as a part of technology development for constructing an offshore drilling structure in 1,050 feet water depth.
