McDermott International and Baker Hughes General Electric (BHGE) have been awarded contracts to provide a joint umbilicals, risers, and flowlines (URF) and subsea production systems (SPS) solution for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG field development located off the northwest coast of Western Australia.

The award includes a joint URF and SPS engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) solution, comprising a new subsea well gathering system (GS4), tied back to the existing central processing facility. In addition to the GS4 scope, the award includes in-fill URF EPCI scope involving the development of new subsea wells tied-in to the existing gathering systems.

Fabrication of the subsea URF equipment will be carried out at McDermott’s fabrication facility in Batam, Indonesia. BHGE will deliver the SPS scope, including vertical christmas trees, associated production control systems, distribution equipment, and topside controls as well as associated installation and commissioning support services.

Offshore installation of the URF and SPS equipment will commence in 2020 and be completed in 2023. The field development will be carried out using assets including McDermott’s derrick lay vessel DLV 2000.
