InterMoor Contracted to Design and Fabricate Suction Piles
InterMoor, an Acteon company, has finalized an agreement with Cameron International Corporation to design and fabricate 11 suction piles for the Jack/St. Malo field in the Gulf of Mexico, announced InterMoor President Tom Fulton.
The 11 suction piles are all 18 ft in diameter, ranging from 55 ft to 75 ft in length and weighing up to 115 tons. The piles will be installed in the Walker Ridge block in 7,000 ft of water. The design and engineering of the piles was awarded to InterMoor in June and Phase 1 of the design work has already been completed. The fabrication portion was awarded later in 2010.
InterMoor will be fabricating all the piles at its new 24-acre Morgan City, La., facility. The new facility has two fabrication buildings with more than 25,000 sq ft of work space. Pile fabrication started in December and the last pile will be delivered in January 2012.
“We constructed our new facility to be able to handle projects of this magnitude and better serve customers such as Cameron,” said Fabrication Manager Victor Mitchell. “This is the perfect job to launch the opening of our new facility.”
