Shallow Water Minimal Monopods
Design and Installation – Western Australia


ICON Engineering was commissioned by the Apache Energy Drilling Group to design shallow water monopod structures using specially reinforced 30" conductors as the platform legs. The philosophy requires that the conductors not only serve as surface casings of exploration wells, but they can also be retained for later conversion to minimal offshore structures in the event that a discovery is made.

Hookup and commissioning of these platforms is minimal due to their simplicity.

WA NW Shelf Second Trunkline Project

The study addressed trencher and plough options for stabilising the proposed 42” second trunkline. Trenching machine options were considered due to the existence of cap rock, which cannot be ploughed over a large proportion of the route. The concept utilised two powerful cutter slicers, which precede the plough and allow the material to be removed by the plough section.
