Aker to supply Ichthys subsea tie-in connectors

Offshore staff

FORNEBU, Norway – Aker Solutions has signed a contract with McDermott for delivery of subsea tie-in connectors to the Ichthys LNG project offshore northwestern Australia for NOK 500 million ($90 million).

The scope of work includes the delivery of 6-in. to 18-in. horizontal and vertical diverless tie-in connectors to be included in the McDermott umbilicals, risers, and flowline scope for the Ichthys LNG project.

McDermott is the lead contractor for the Ichthys LNG SURF field development project.

The tie-in connector project will be executed by Aker Solutions’ headquarters at Fornebu, Norway. Manufacturing will be handled by the strategic supply chain network and the expected delivery date is from 2013-2014.

The connectors will be used to connect flowlines to subsea structures, manifolds, and export riser bases.

Ichthys is a joint venture between INPEX (operator), TOTAL, and other participants. Gas from the Ichthys field, in the Browse basin approximately 200 km (125 mi) offshore of Western Australia, will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and extract condensate. The gas will then be exported to onshore processing facilities in Darwin.
