McDermott Hires Neptune for Additional Ichthys Work


Neptune Marine Services’ Subsea Stabilisation division has been awarded two subcontracts by McDermott Australia for the Ichthys LNG Project.

McDermott is the appointed main contractor for the Subsea Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines (SURF) engineering, procurement, construction and installation portion of the project.

The initial subcontract includes the design and fabrication of specialist scour protection systems and the secondary scope entails the grouting of the Riser Support Structure (RSS) and grouting of the SPS. Neptune’s in-house engineering team in Perth provided the engineering design of the scour protection systems and the fabrication is managed at Neptune’s facilities in Asia.

Delivery of the scour protection systems is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2014, with third-party installation of the offshore structures to begin the following quarter. Neptune will perform the associated grouting once the systems are fully installed in accordance with McDermott’s installation schedule.

These scopes are subsequent to the successful delivery of concrete mattresses for the Ichthys Project earlier this year by Neptune’s Subsea Stabilisation division.

Neptune’s Chief Executive Officer, Robin King, said: “it is pleasing to see some of our other businesses being awarded work on this prominent resource project. Following the completion of multiple scopes of work for another key client by other Neptune divisions, our Geomatics and ROV businesses also performed the pre-lay survey and array installation for McDermott in 2014.”
