MCDERMOTT – SUBSEA INFRASTRUCTURE INSTALLED AT ICHTHYS FIELD

January 26, 2024

McDermott, a premier engineering and construction company, and Baker Hughes, an energy technology company, announced the safe completion of the installation of subsea infrastructure at the Ichthys field in northern Australia.
Awarded to the McDermott and Baker Hughes consortium in 2019 by INPEX Operations Australia P/L (INPEX), the subsea infrastructure development project included engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of umbilicals, risers and flowlines (URF), a subsea production system comprised of a new 7-inch (approximately 18 centimeters) vertical Christmas tree (VXT) system, all forming a subsea well gathering system (GS4) tied back to the existing Ichthys Explorer central processing facility. The consortium’s scope of work also included an in-fill URF EPCI involving the development of new subsea wells tied in to the existing gathering systems.
