ACTEON’S InterMoor unit has been contracted by Cameron International to design and fabricate 11 suction piles for the Chevron-operated Jack and St Malo fields, in the US sector of the Gulf of Mexico.
The order covers suction piles weighing up to 115 tons. These will be installed in Walker Ridge Blocks 678 and 758, in water depths to 2,133m (7,000ft).
InterMoor will manufacture the piles at its 24-acre facility in Louisiana. Fabrication started in December, and the last pile will be delivered in January 2012.
