McDermott International Inc. has announced that it has completed the final offshore campaign for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG project, located offshore Western Australia.

This was the second of two remaining work packages left under McDermott’s contract, which was the largest subsea contract ever awarded at the time. According to the statement, most of EPCI for the SURF contract awarded in 2012 was completed by the end of 2017.

McDermott claims the final offshore campaign involved subsea tiebacks to new drills centres, and was carried out by its Lay Vessel 108 (LV 108). The vessel has recorded 813 694 hours without any lost time incidents (LTI) since its first campaign in 2015.

Ian Prescott, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific, said: “The final campaign was executed in a live producing field, and as such, we put in place additional risk and controls management that ensured our success and met all of the customer expectations. This has demonstrated McDermott’s execution capability on a large scale, complex SURF EPCI scope.

“Our outstanding record of accomplishment confirms our expertise and ability to execute one of the world’s largest subsea contracts to date.”

According to the statement, the company has a small fabrication scope remaining to be completed at its fabrication yard in Batam, Indonesia, which will conclude its work packages for the Ichthys LNG project in its entirety in 2019.
