Subsea success in Brazil

LDD's StabFrame in Brazil

A Penryn-based offshore drilling company has just completed an ambitious project in Brazil.

Large Diameter Drilling Ltd (LDD), together with German partner MENCK, successfully deployed its ‘StabFrame’ device in the Campos Basin, a petroleum-rich area located beneath the waters off the Rio de Janeiro coast

It was the first time that the StabFrame had ever been deployed, and helps stabilise pile driving equipment in deep underwater conditions, with varying soil conditions on the seabed.

Despite strong currents, the project finished without incident and ahead of schedule.
