McDermott International, Inc. has been awarded a contract from Reliance Industries Ltd. for the KG-D6 subsea field development in the Krishna Godavari Basin, located off the east coast of India.
Under the terms of the contract, McDermott will provide engineering, procurement, installation and pre-commissioning for the following:
- Subsea flowlines
- Vent lines
- A pipeline-end manifold for connection with six subsea wells in the R-cluster field at a water depth of up to 6,890 feet
- In-field pipelines
- A Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) line
- Pipeline-end terminals
- An umbilicals system and the modification of the control riser platform to interface with the new facilities
“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,” said Hugh Cuthbertson, McDermott’s Vice President for Asia. “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.”
In addition to the R-Cluster of six subsea wells, the option for five to seven more subsea wells can be exercised by Reliance Industries as part of another S-cluster package. The optional scope also consists of two additional subsea structures and flowlines at a water depth between 4,593 and 5,905 feet.
To complete the project, McDermott’s Engineering Center of Excellence office in Chennai will provide engineering and project management oversight for the project. The cmpany also plans to use its successful One McDermott Way approach with support from its office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and key vessels from its global marine fleet.
