US-based engineering services firm Mcdermott International has secured contracts for offshore projects based in India and the Middle East.
In India, the company received a contract from Reliance Industries, in connection with the KG-D6 subsea field development in the Krishna Godavari Basin off the country’s east coast.
McDermott will provide pre-commissioning of subsea flowlines, vent lines, and a pipeline-end manifold for connection with six subsea wells in the R-cluster field at a total water depth of 6,890ft.
McDermott International Asia vice-president Hugh Cuthbertson said: “We look forward to working with Reliance on this important and challenging project and building on our recent experience and expertise in deepwater projects across the region.
“McDermott’s selection underscores the confidence and trust we’ve built with our customers to deliver challenging projects within budget and on schedule, like our recent success on ONGC’s Vashishta project.”
Additionally, the company has provided an option to Reliance for five to seven more subsea wells under an optional S-cluster package.
As part of the optional scope, two additional subsea structures and flowlines are expected to be taken up at a water depth between 4,593ft and 5,905ft.
The base scope of the contract is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2020, while the optional scope is slated for completion in the first quarter of 2021.
Meanwhile, the contract for an offshore redevelopment project in the Middle East covers engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) services.
The company is required to fabricate and install four wellhead topsides, in addition to a manifold platform and jacket along with related subsea pipelines and brownfield tie-in works.
