TechnipFMC: Record Orders, Backlog in Q2

Franco-American oil services company TechnipFMC received a record volume of orders in the second quarter, pushing its backlog of projects to a peak thanks to new liquefied natural gas projects, it said on Wednesday.The records could signal a rebound for the company created by a 2016 merger of France's Technip and U.S. rival FMC Technologies to weather the oil price crash that had forced their oil major clients to slash budgets and shelve projects."We achieved record inbound orders in the quarter, with total company orders reaching $11.2 billion," Doug Pferdehirt, chairman and CEO of

McDermott Wraps Up Ichthys LNG Campaign

an expected operational life of 40 years.The project involves liquefying natural gas lifted from the Ichthys gas-condensate field offshore Western Australia at an onshore gas liquefaction plant constructed in Darwin, Northern Territory, and producing and shipping approximately 8.9 million tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and approximately 1.65 million tons of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) per year, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak. Approximately 70% of the LNG produced by Ichthys LNG is scheduled to be supplied to Japanese customers

Ocean Infinity to Deploy AUVs for Scarborough Survey

Australia.The contract, awarded by Australian oil and gas company Woodside Energy, involves a deepwater geophysical pre-engineering route survey, extending approximately 300 kilometers from the Scarborough subsea field in 950- to 1,400-meter water depths up the scarp break toward existing onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing facilities on the Burrup Peninsula.The deepwater geophysical survey project set to commence in mid-June 2018 will see Ocean Infinity deploy multiple autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) simultaneously from the 115-meter vessel Seabed Constructor to collect the data required

Shell Feeds Gas to Australia's New Prelude FLNG

Royal Dutch Shell has introduced gas to its 490 meter (1,600 ft) long Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) unit as part of the cooling process before start-up, a spokeswoman told Reuters on Wednesday.Gas was fed to the unit from liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier Gallina, she said. Thomson Reuters Eikon ship tracking data shows that the vessel left Prelude FLNG port on June 7."This will cool down the tanks and process equipment and pipework with gas and is an opportunity to test processes and systems before the subsea wells are opened at start-up," she said.Shell and Inpex Corp

McDermott Closing CB&I Deal

will close its acquisition of Chicago Bridge and Iron Co NV on Thursday, creating an integrated onshore and offshore services group that will expand its presence in the Middle East.McDermott's offshore engineering and construction work will combine with CB&I's onshore skills including liquefied natural gas (LNG) and power plants. McDermott will bolster its service offerings in Saudi Arabia, where it is already adding facilities and has contracts with national oil company Saudi Aramco.David Dickson, McDermott's chief executive officer who this week met with Saudi Aramco executives in Houston
