EnerMech, a provider of mechanical engineering services for the energy industry, has been awarded its first contract by Subsea 7 in the Australian oil and gas market.
The mechanical engineering group said on Sunday it will perform a range of subsea flowline and umbilical pre-commissioning on the Woodside-operated North West Shelf’’s Persephone project and North Rankin Complex in Western Australia.
Woodside said in October this year it was working to bring its Persephone gas project on stream next year.
EnerMech’s work scope includes flooding, hydro-testing and dewatering of flow lines & well jumpers and testing all hydraulic, electrical and optical cores on the main line umbilical, EFL’s and HFL’s with work expected to start this month.
EnerMech has seven bases in Australia, including Perth, Melbourne, Darwin and Gladstone. The company already undertakes specialist testing work on the North Rankin Complex for Wood Group PSN.
EnerMech’s Australia regional director, Allan Hart, said: “As a company, we have a strong relationship with Subsea 7 in the major international oil and gas producing hubs and we are delighted to consolidate this link with our first contract award in Australia.”
Hart also added that EnerMech’s proposal fitted well with Woodside’s specification for the flooding, cleaning, and testing of offshore pipelines.
