USA-based offshore engineering and construction company McDermott has completed work on the Reliance Industries, India, KG-D6 Satellite Cluster Project, off the east coast of India.
The Satellite Cluster Project scope included subsea pipelines and the installation of jumpers, umbilicals, in-line structures, pipelines, subsea manifolds and associated structures and pre-commissioning of pipelines and umbilical.
McDermott’s Derrick Lay Vessel 2000 and North Ocean 102 were used on the scope. At its peak, there were approximately 500 personnel working offshore supporting installation and pre-commissioning activities.
“The work included many firsts, including the deepest pipelay in India at 6069 feet (1850 metres) and the first piggy-back pipelay by our Derrick Lay Vessel 2000,” said Mahesh Swaminathan, McDermott senior vice president, Asia Pacific.
He added: “Completing these scopes despite some of the obstacles we faced, including cyclones and Covid-19, is testament to our project execution expertise in complex subsea environments and demonstrates our dedication to delivering our customer’s projects safely.”
