Neptune Marine Services Limited (Neptune) says that its Subsea Stabilisation division was recently 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.
