McDermott To Install Umbilicals & Subsea Equipment In Deepwater Gulf Of Mexico Walker Ridge Field Development

McDermott expects to successfully execute this high‐profile project employing its in‐house expertise and capabilities for subsea engineering, high‐spec fabrication and subsea installation. Work will commence with immediate effect in our Houston office.

McDermott deepwater installation vessel Derrick Barge 50 is expected to undertake the installation of suction piles and subsea equipment, including the manifold, pump station and transformer. The vessel’s new deepwater lowering system has the capability to lower loads of up to 480 tons to depths of up to 11,500 feet.

In addition, North Ocean 102 (NO102) is scheduled to transport and install umbilicals, flying leads and jumpers. NO102 is a fast-transit vessel with horizontal carousel. Recent improvements include installation of a high-capacity flexible-lay system to enable ultra deepwater installation work – comprising a 330-ton top-tension flex-lay tower, with 275-ton active heave compensation crane and 330-ton hang-off clamp capable of lowering loads to a depth of 10,000 feet.

The offshore installation campaign is expected to begin second quarter of 2015 and extend through 2015.
