McDermott completes topside installation for Petronas

9/01/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


McDermott International, Inc. has completed the installation of a 3,086-ton central processing platform (CPP) topside using the tight-slot float-over method in the Kepodang gas field, Muriah Working Area, offshore Indonesia for PC Muriah Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PETRONAS.

According to McDermott, this brings the installation of all structures for the Kepodang project to a close. McDermott started operations on this fast-track project, one month after the contract was awarded, in January 2013.

“The overall success of this project was made possible by the smart engineering of the float-over sequence to position the CPP topside next to an existing wellhead module already installed on the jacket at the installation site,” said Hugh Cuthbertson, Vice President and General Manager, Asia Pacific.

“Our global team of in-house engineering experts, high performance fabrication at our Batam, Indonesia yard and our strong supplier relationships in Indonesia were our key differentiators. We are also proud to be recognized by PETRONAS as “Best Contractor HSE Performer 2013” for our exemplary project safety record.”

The project scope included procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of the CPP topside and jacket, a wellhead module, a wellhead platform and jacket, 1.7-mile-long 10-inch diameter infield flowline, and installation of remote control facilities at an onshore receiving facility. The total weight of overall facilities is close to 11,000 tons.
