The KG-D6 block lies in the Krishna-Godavari basin of the Bay of Bengal off the eastern coast of India.
For the R Cluster project, McDermott built a yard facility in India for the fabrication of risers and jumpers, as well as the provision of marine logistics support.
McDermott Asia Pacific senior vice-president Ian Prescott said: “The safe and successful completion of Reliance’s KG-D6 R Cluster project is a testament to McDermott’s subsea experience in the Bay of Bengal.
“Pre-commissioning and ready for startup was achieved despite difficult circumstances, two severe cyclones during the first campaign and, in the second, navigating the challenging conditions of Covid-19. It is an outstanding achievement and demonstrates McDermott’s commitment to reliable execution.”
There are two offshore campaigns for the project.
