Kuala Lumpur: McDermott International announced that a subsidiary of the company has become the first to install rigid reel-lay pipe-in-pipe in Asia Pacific, at the Siakap North-Petai (SNP) development project offshore Malaysia. At more than 3900 feet, the SNP development is one of the industry’s most challenging deepwater projects.
“Successfully installing the rigid reeled pipe-in-pipe flowlines on the Siakap project is a significant achievement for McDermott and a first for the region,” said David Dickson, president and chief executive officer, McDermott.
McDermott was awarded the full turnkey contract in December 2011 for the project’s subsea infrastructure. Installation of the pipe-in-pipe production flowlines and rigid water injection flowlines was undertaken by McDermott’s Lay Vessel North Ocean 105. [30/04/14]
