InterMoor finalized an agreement with Cameron to design and fabricate 11 suction piles for the Jack/St. Malo development in the Gulf of Mexico. The 11 suction piles are 18 feet (5 meters) in diameter, ranging from 55 to 75 feet (17 to 23 meters) in length and weighing up to 115 tons. The piles will be installed in the Walker Ridge block in 7,000 feet (2,134 meters) of water.
The design and engineering portion of the piles was awarded to InterMoor in June, and phase one of the design work is completed. The fabrication portion was awarded later in 2010, fabrication stated in December, and the last pile will be delivered in January 2012. Located in a water depth of 7,000 feet (2,134 meters) on Walker Ridge Blocks 758 and 759 (Jack), and 678 (St. Malo), the joint development project is operated by Chevron (50%). Partners include Statoil (25%) and Maersk (25%).
