LDD, an Acteon company, has successfully finished a specialist foundation installation for the Etame Marin block field expansion project, offshore Gabon, West Africa. The company completed the very remote installation safely and on schedule.

VAALCO Gabon (Etame) Inc. is the operator of the Etame Marin block. EMAS AMC, the subsea services division of EMAS, is undertaking the block expansion project on behalf of VAALCO Gabon (Etame) Inc. and its working interest partners. LDD was awarded the foundations contract covering drilling, grouting, lifting and handling in April 2014.

LDD worked closely with EMAS AMC to install four 48-in. piles for each of the two jackets. Each pile was 140 m in length and penetrated approximately 42 m below the mudline. The companies worked off EMAS’ new flagship vessel, the Lewek Constellation.
