McDermott bags Scarborough EPCIC contract

US-based McDermott has been awarded a contract by Woodside for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) services for the Scarborough project floating production unit (FPU) offshore Western Australia, the company said on January 10.

The integrated scope also includes the design, fabrication, integration, transportation and installation of the hull and topsides. McDermott has successfully completed the front-end engineering design (FEED) for the Scarborough project.

The topside, which will be approximately 30,000 metric tons, will be fabricated by McDermott's joint venture fabrication yard, Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan, in China. The project scope includes a battery energy storage system to reduce emissions on the topsides and support Woodside's net emissions reduction targets.

Engineering expertise will be leveraged from McDermott's Kuala Lumpur and Gurgaon offices, with McDermott's subsea team in Perth supporting transport, installation, hook up and commissioning activities.

The FPU processes natural gas, which includes gas separation, dehydration and compression as well as mono ethylene glycol regeneration and produced-water handling. Designed for a production capacity of up to 1.8bn ft3/day, the topside will be connected to the semi-submersible hull and pre-commissioned prior to transportation and installation in a water depth of 3,100 feet.
