InterMoor, an Acteon company, has won a contract for design, fabrication and installation of 12 suction pile anchors, preset installation of 12 chain/polyester/chain mooring lines and hook-up of the LLOG Delta House production semi-submersible (the Floating Production System “FPS”). The work will be conducted in the Mississippi Canyon 254 block of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

The project will involve suction pile design, fabrication and installation, followed by preset mooring installation and pre-set mooring hook-up of the FPS. The 12 piles will be 85 ft. long and 16 ft. in diameter weighing approximately 150 metric tons each. They are designed to be used as permanent anchors for the project. Installation activities are planned for mid-2014. Delta House will be moored in 4,500 ft. of water and is LLOG’s second Exmar-designed Opti deep-draft, semi-submersible production system in the region. 

Tom Fulton, InterMoor’s president, said the project will add to InterMoor’s track record for permanent moorings which includes deepwater mooring projects around the world, including Kikeh, Shell Auger, ATP Mirage and the Williams Gulfstar FPS.

Fabrication of the 12 suction piles for the LLOG Delta House will take place at InterMoor’s 30,000 sq. ft. Morgan City, La., facility. The ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001 certified site includes two fabrication buildings complete with engineering and design capabilities.
