The contract was awarded to McDermott by Woodside Energy Ltd in January 2016.

Announcing the completion of the project for Woodside, McDermott said on Tuesday it was responsible for the procurement, fabrication, installation and testing of a series of pipeline buckle initiators, pipeline end terminations and foundation mudmats, in-line tee structures and approximately 21 miles (35 kilometers) of a 16-inch (40 centimeters) corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) pipeline extending from the existing Goodwyn A Platform to the Lady Nora and Pemberton field manifold locations.

“One of the key challenges of the project was to perform installation work inside the 546 yards (500 meters) safety zone of Woodside’s Goodwyn A Platform,” said Vince Vieraitis, McDermott’s GWF-2 Project Director.

“Through close collaboration with the client, the project was delivered in full compliance to project specifications with zero lost time incidents.”

McDermott deployed two of its specialty vessels to complete the installation phase, namely DLV 2000 for the pipelay campaign and the Lay Vessel 108 for the pre-lay and post-lay campaign. McDermott also set up an onshore portable and temporary double jointing facility at its Batam fabrication yard in Indonesia to simulate the offshore installation campaign.

First gas by 2018-end 

The Greater Western Flank Phase 2 fields lie in water depths varying between 262 feet (80 meters) and 426 feet (130 meters) at approximately 29 to 37 miles (40 to 60 kilometers) southwest of the Goodwyn A Platform, located off the northwest coast of western Australia.

It includes the development of eight wells from the Keast, Dockrell, Lady Nora, Pemberton, Sculptor and Rankin fields. Gas production is tied-back via the pipeline end termination, in-line tees and subsea pipeline to the platform. The project is expected to achieve first gas by the end of this year.
