McDermott and Baker Hughes score Myanmar subsea contract

McDermott International and Baker Hughes, a GE company, have been awarded a contract by Posco Daewoo for phase two of the Shwe gas field development offshore Myanmar.

The contract covers SURF and SPS for an eight-subsea-well development a well as brownfield modifications to tie-back the new subsea facilities to the existing Shwe platform.

Graham Gillies, VP – subsea production systems & services at Baker Hughes, commented: “Cost efficiency and productivity are top priorities for our customers and are fundamentally changing the way we work and partner across the industry to deliver the solutions they need. Through early engagement and close collaboration with Posco Daewoo, the consortium was able to offer the optimum solution.”

McDermott will undertake the EPCIC of SURF and brownfield modification scopes and installation of SURF and SPS components. Baker Hughes will supply the SPS scope, including eight medium-water horizontal Xmas trees, eight subsea production control systems and distribution equipment, and topside controls.

Installation will be carried out using McDermott’s pipelay assets including the derrick lay vessel DLV 2000, with final delivery scheduled for 2022.
