McDermott, L&T in subsea pact offshore India
A consortium formed by U.S oilfield services provider McDermott and India’s L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) has won a contract covering the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of major subsea field infrastructure for the Vashishta and S1 Development Project, a greenfield deepwater development off India’s East coast.
The scope of work includes supply and installation of a series of pipeline end terminations (PLETs) and in-line tee structures (ILT), a pipeline end manifold structure (PLEM), rigid jumpers and approximately 30 miles of umbilicals. The pipeline scope includes 64 miles of 14-inch dual rigid pipelines extending from the shallow water shore line to a maximum water depth of 2,300 feet.
“This award confirms the success of a strong consortium focused on delivering the best in-market solution for ONGC,” said David Dickson, McDermott’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The combination of our best in class, deepwater, shallow water and onshore assets and capabilities created a compelling value proposition and also maximized the amount of work that will be undertaken in India. We look forward to working seamlessly with LTHE in delivering flawless execution for ONGC.”
“This collaborative consortium created value by utilizing LTHE’s strong execution capabilities and strategically located Kattupalli facility for fabrication, setting up a local spoolbase, and generating schedule efficiency by using a combination of deepwater reel-lay and S-lay in shallow water,” said Hugh Cuthbertson, McDermott’s Vice President, Asia. “In addition to the deployment of McDermott’s modular, portable spoolbase, McDermott’s Derrick Barge 30 (DB30) and deepwater North Ocean 105 (NO105) are also expected to be utilized.”
The award will be included in McDermott’s 4Q 2015 backlog.
