Large Diameter Drilling (LDD)

LDD, an Acteon company, continues to enhance its global footprint by installing drilled and grouted piles as part of the Etame Marin block field expansion programme, offshore Gabon, West Africa. VAALCO Gabon (Etame) Inc. is the operator of the Etame Marin block. LDD will deliver a specialist foundation installation programme, including drilling, grouting, lifting and handling. The fieldwork phase for the LDD operation started in April.

For the jacket installation, LDD will work closely with EMAS AMC to install four 48-in.-outside-diameter piles for each jacket. Each pile will be 140 m in length, including a penetration of approximately 50 m below the mudline. The piles will be inserted into sockets drilled below the pile at each leg using 54-in.-diameter underreaming drill bits.
