McDermott Makes Headway With New Projects
McDermott has made significant progress on a pair of major projects this week.
The US-based engineering and construction company recently announced that the Angelin platform was safely loaded out from its fabrication facility in Altamira, Mexico, for delivery to Trinidad and Tobago. BP, who owns 70% of the project to go with Repsol’s 30%, sanctioned the offshore gas project last June. The four-well development will have a 600-MMscf/D production capacity. Gas from Angelin will flow to the Serrette platform hub via a 13-km pipeline.
First gas is expected from the Angelin facility, which will be installed 37 miles off the southeast coast of Trinidad at 213-ft water depth, in 1Q 2019. McDermott was contracted to build a four-legged main pile jacket and a four-deck topside. The pipeline will be installed by McDermott’s DLV 2000 vessel.
In other areas, work continues on McDermott’s construction of the Abkatun-A2 platform for Pemex. McDermott began installation work on the platform in May, nearly 2 years after cutting first steel at the Altamira facility.
Pemex awarded a $454-million contract for engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contract for the platform to McDermott in June 2016. The project, which at the time was McDermott’s largest in size and total value, will be located in 124-ft water depth in the Bay of Campeche. It will provide replacement and expansion capabilities to the existing Ku-Maloob-Zaap, Cantarell, and Ayatsil facilities.
Wood To Modify Platforms for Equinor's Floating Wind Project
As part of the contract, Wood will provide the topside modifications needed for the Snorre A and Gullfaks A platforms to integrate the Hywind floating wind park with existing systems powering the facilities. The platforms will be the first to receive electric power from floating wind turbines.
Construction Begins at Cambodia’s First Offshore Platform
First steel has been cut for the minimum facilities wellhead platform for the Apsara field offshore Cambodia, the country’s maiden oil development. Operator KrisEnergy said production is scheduled to begin in the first half of 2020.
First Deck Stacking Operation Completed for Coral FLNG Topsides Modules
The Eni-operated project will be the first FLNG vessel deployed in a deepwater field offshore the African continent upon its projected 2022 startup. Samsung Heavy Industries completed the operation at its shipyard in Geoje, South Korea.
