Fabrication started last September at InterMoor’s Morgan City facility, manufacturing four manifold piles for McDermott on ExxonMobil’s Julia project.

InterMoor is currently fabricating 4 suction piles for the project:

  • A pump station pile
  • A transformer pile
  • A manifold pile
  • A subsea distribution unit/umbilical termination assembly pile

Two piles are 45ft. long, one is 65ft. long and the longest one is 103ft.

The piles are 20ft. diameter, which is the largest rolled by InterMoor to date.

Their weight ranges from 66 to 277 Tons.

The deepwater Julia oil field is located 265 mi (426 km) southwest of New Orleans in the GoM Walker Ridge area in water depths of approximately 7,000 ft (2,134 m). 



Safety is Paramount

Throughout the project, McDermott, ExxonMobil and InterMoor worked closely together to ensure the Julia project was delivered safely.

McDermott and ExxonMobil recognized members of the project team for their positive impact on the project.

These employees received Leadership in Safety Awards.  In the picture the InterMoor employee’s receiving the awards are left to right in the middle of the picture:
