McDermott awarded Sepia Phase 1 subsea scope
Petrobras has awarded McDermott International an EPCI subsea contract for the first-phase Sepia field development in the presalt Santos basin, 174 mi (280 km) offshore Rio de Janeiro state.
The project scope includes detailed engineering, surveys, supply, installation and pre-commissioning of rigid pipelines, jumpers, buoyance modules, strakes and riser monitoring systems for seven-riser wells (three producers and four injectors) which will be connected to FPSOCarioca.
McDermott’s Rio de Janeiro office will manage the program supported by the Houston operation. The company plans to use five vessels for the installation in water depths of up to 7,021 ft (2,140 m).
Phase 1 calls for a 15-well Sepia field development in block BM-S24, with first oil slated for 2021.
