MCDERMOTT International and Baker Hughes GE have been awarded contracts for development work on Inpex’s Ichthys LNG project off the coast of Western Australia.
The award includes a joint subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines and subsea production systems, comprising a new subsea well gathering system, tied back to the existing central gathering systems.
Water depths in the field range from 240 to 270 meters.
Both companies will lead the project from offices in Perth while the fabrication of the URF equipment will be carried out at McDermott's fabrication facility in Batam, Indonesia.
BHGE will deliver the SPS scope, including vertical christmas trees, associated production control systems, distribution equipment and topside controls as well as associated installation and commissioning support services.
Offshore installation of the URF and SPS equipment will commence in 2020 and be completed in 2023.
The field development will be carried out using state-of-the-art assets, including McDermott's derrick lay vessel, DLV 2000.
"McDermott's majority share of this award is a testament to our expertise in executing large and complex subsea EPCI projects," McDermott senior vice president for Asia Pacific Ian Prescott said.
"Our experience will ensure delivery during the next phase of this key gas field development."
"We have brought together core elements of our Subsea Connect approach, leveraging early engagement, advanced technology, and our flexible partnership model to deliver improved project economics and certainty for Ichthys LNG," BHGE regional OFE vice president Graham Gillies said.
