McDermott International, Ltd today 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 310 miles (500 kilometers) off the northwest coast of Darwin, Australia, and 124 miles (200 kilometers) off the southeast coast of Timor-Leste.
“McDermott has a strong track record of delivering complex subsea projects in Asia Pacific,” said 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.
