McDermott International said today it had wrapped up the KG-D6 R Cluster subsea field development project off the east coast of India.
The project, in the in the Krishna Godavari Basin, is now ready for start-up following the completion of pre-commissioning activities for client Reliance Industries.
McDermott built a yard facility in India for the fabrication of risers, jumpers and marine logistics support.
The project comprised two offshore campaigns. During the first, the DLV 2000 was used for a pipelay job, while McDermott also installed India’s longest dual riser.
The second campaign included installation of manifolds, manifold piles, flowlines, in-line structures, jumpers and umbilicals in ultra-deepwater depths, together with major brownfield modifications to Reliance’s control and riser platform.
Ian Prescott, McDermott’s Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, said: “The safe and successful completion of Reliance’s KG-D6 R Cluster project is a testament to McDermott’s subsea experience in the Bay of Bengal.
“Pre-commissioning and ready for startup was achieved despite difficult circumstances—two severe cyclones during the first campaign and, in the second, navigating the challenging conditions of COVID-19.
“It is an outstanding achievement and demonstrates McDermott’s commitment to reliable execution.”
