McDermott and BHGE awarded EPCIC contract offshore Myanmar

The contract includes subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) and subsea production systems (SPS) for the development of eight subsea wells at a depth of between 85 and 142 meters.

It also covers brownfield modifications to tie-back the new subsea facilities to the existing Shwe platform.

The JV participated in a front-end engineering and design (FEED), completed in 2017, which was followed by a tender for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC).

McDermott’s strategic alliance with BHGE is a combination of two leaders in subsea development,” said McDermott Asia Pacific Senior Vice President Ian Prescott.

“Together, we offer comprehensive, cost-efficient and advanced technical solutions for our customers.

“McDermott’s expertise in executing large and complex EPCIC projects in Asia will help us deliver certainty during the next phase of this important gas field development.”

BHGE Graham Gillies Vice President Subsea Production Systems and Services said, “Cost efficiency and productivity are top priorities for our customers and are fundamentally changing the way we work and partner across the industry to deliver the solutions they need.

“Through early engagement and close collaboration with POSCO DAEWOO, the consortium was able to offer the optimum solution.

“This win demonstrates the value the consortium can create through early engagement with customers, adoption of standardised technology solutions and efficiency of project execution.”

McDermott will undertake the EPCIC of SURF and brownfield modification scopes, using its regional centre of excellence for project management and engineering in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The SURF structures and production manifolds will be fabricated in the Asia Pacific region.

McDermott also will execute the installation and commissioning phase, with field service engineering expertise and tooling support from BHGE’s base in Singapore.

Installation of SURF and SPS components will be carried out using McDermott’s state of the art pipelay assets, including the Derrick Lay Vessel 2000.

BHGE will supply the SPS scope, including eight medium-water horizontal Xmas trees, eight subsea production control systems and distribution equipment, and topside controls.
