McDermott wins contracts from Inpex, Woodside

Engineering company McDermott said that its new flagship derrick lay vessel, the DLV 2000, has secured two contracts offshore Western Australia from Woodside and Inpex.

The DLV 2000 is expected to join the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG project as part of McDermott’s current project schedule by installing large subsea spools, laying infield umbilicals and lifting several subsea distribution units that will provide the hydraulic, chemical and electrical distribution from the umbilicals to the subsea drill centers,  McDermott said in a statement on Monday.

Work is expected to be performed in conjunction with McDermott’s other new subsea installation vessel, the construction support vessel 108 (CSV 108), that is already working on the LNG project. The CSV 108 is expected to undergo an upgrade later this year to install a vertical lay system and reel deployment system, also for use in the project and will then be referred to as lay vessel 108 (LV 108).

Under the second contract, the DLV 2000 will work offshore Western Australia, supporting a transportation and installation contract awarded by Woodside for the Greater Western Flank Phase 2 project.

The installation will take place about 20 miles from the Goodwyn A platform located in the North West Shelf region off Western Australia, McDermott said in a separate statement.

The DLV 2000 is a class 3 dynamically positioned vessel combining a 2,200-ton revolving crane with a deepwater S-lay pipelay system configured to install pipelines with diameters ranging from 4.5 to 60 inches in water depths up to 10,000 ft, according to McDermott.
