McDermott International Inc. (NYSE: MDR) and Baker Hughes (NYSE: BHGE) will provide FEED studies in advance of a substantial engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract for BP’s Tortue/Ahmeyim field development, the companies said on March 12.
The gas project is located on the maritime border of Mauritania and Senegal.
During this initial engineering phase, McDermott will work on defining the subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines scope for the project, while BHGE will focus on the subsea production system scope.
The FEED is scheduled to begin and complete this year. The agreement contains a mechanism to allow transition of the contract to a lump sum EPCI contract at a later date. McDermott will work jointly with BHGE to provide an optimized, integrated solution.
McDermott expects to use the project lifecycle management module from its new digital platform Gemini XD to deliver advanced technology through project execution and the development of a digital twin of the complete system.
The project will also benefit from BHGE’s RealTrack digital collaboration tool which provides live, real-time reporting of schedule progress, document status and issues management for more efficient project execution.
Teams from McDermott and BHGE will perform the project management and FEED work from McDermott’s Epsom facility in the U.K.
