Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan Offshore Engineering (QMW) has completed a fast-track compression process module fabrication subcontract for Jord Oil & Gas Systems (JOGS).

JOGS was contracted to provide engineering, procurement and construction of a jackup compression platform to be linked to the PEMEX Akal G-1 platform, offshore Mexico.

The scope of work included construction engineering, procurement of bulk materials, fabrication, pre-commissioning and transportation of three process modules, associated skids and a flare boom.

"QMW worked so quickly and effectively, resolving a lot of challenges in a very flexible way."

QMW is a joint venture between McDermott International and China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation.

McDermott International executive vice-president for offshore Scott Cummins said: "The design of the Qingdao fabrication facility and the mega-module fabrication shop, which can accommodate large structures in an enclosed environment, was an essential element for delivering schedule certainty on this fast-track project, allowing for continuous operations regardless of weather conditions."

JOGS commercial director Dick Roest said: "QMW worked so quickly and effectively, resolving a lot of challenges in a very flexible way."

QMW provides engineering, procurement and commissioning solutions for the floating production storage and offloading market, as well as fabrication capabilities via an 111-acre fabrication yard, which is located in the Huangdao district in Qingdao, Shandong province, China.
