McDermott International has been awarded a contract from India's Reliance Industries for the KG-D6 subsea field development in the Krishna Godavari Basin, located off the east coast of India.
Reliance is developing deepwater gas and oil fields in the KG-D6 block. The north-western boundary of the block is about 24 to 37 miles (40-60 km) southeast of Kakinada in water depth of between 400 meters and 2,300 meters.
McDermott will provide engineering, procurement, installation and pre-commissioning of subsea flowlines, vent lines, and a pipeline-end manifold for connection with six subsea wells in the R-cluster field at a water depth of up to 2,100 meters.
“We look forward to working with Reliance on this important and challenging project and building on our recent experience and expertise in deepwater projects across the region,” said Hugh Cuthbertson, McDermott’s vice president for Asia.
In addition to the R-Cluster of six subsea wells, the option for five to seven more subsea wells can be exercised by the client for an optional S-cluster package.
The contract is set for completion by the second quarter of 2020 for the base scope, and the first quarter of 2021 for the optional scope.
