McDermott’s DLV 2000 Gets First Subsea Installation Job

McDermott International’s new derrick lay vessel, the DLV 2000, has secured scope as part of the current McDermott work schedule for the INPEX Ichthys LNG project offshore Western Australia.

The DLV 2000 is a class 3 dynamically positioned vessel combining a 2,200-ton revolving crane with a deepwater S-lay pipelay system configured to install pipelines with diameters ranging from 4.5 to 60 inches in water depths up to 10,000 ft. The vessel can accommodate up to 400 personnel to facilitate hook-up and commissioning projects and incorporates a 43,000 sq. ft. open deck to allow the transportation and assembly of large subsea structures.

The DLV 2000 is expected to join the project as part of McDermott’s 2016 current project schedule by installing large subsea spools, laying infield umbilicals and lifting several Subsea Distribution Units that will provide the hydraulic, chemical and electrical distribution from the umbilicals to the subsea drill centers.

Work is expected to be performed in conjunction with McDermott’s other new subsea installation vessel, the Construction Support Vessel 108 (CSV 108), that is already working on the project. The CSV 108 is expected to undergo an upgrade later this year to install a Vertical Lay System and Reel Deployment System, also for use in the project and will then be referred to as Lay Vessel 108 (LV 108), McDermott explained.

“It is an exciting time to see our newest subsea vessels working side-by-side on this landmark project,” said Hugh Cuthbertson, Vice President, Asia. “We look forward to this being a very successful start for the DLV 2000 and helping us deliver a successful project for our client, INPEX, and other project stakeholders as well as demonstrating the capability and versatility of the McDermott subsea fleet to the industry.”

McDermott anticipates several months of work for the DLV 2000 offshore Western Australia during the second and third quarters of 2016.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
