McDermott International, Ltd has announced it has been awarded a subsea engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract from Santos NA (19-12) Pty Ltd for the Bayu-Undan Infill Well Phase 3C Project, in the Timor Sea, located approximately 500 kilometres off the northwest coast of Darwin, Australia, and 200 kilometres off the southeast coast of Timor-Leste.
“McDermott has a strong track record of delivering complex subsea projects in Asia Pacific,” says Mahesh Swaminathan, McDermott’s Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific. “We will continue that tradition as we demonstrate our execution expertise and safety excellence throughout this project.”
The Bayu-Undan field is one of Timor-Leste’s largest gas fields. Work on the Phase 3C Project commenced in May and, the scope will be managed by McDermott’s office in Perth. The McDermott scope involves a tieback of a single in-field well to existing facilities re-using existing flexible flowline with a new umbilical and certain infrastructure.
