McDermott Wraps Up Ichthys LNG Campaign

McDermott International announced Monday it has completed the final offshore campaign for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project, located offshore Western Australia.This was the second of two remaining work packages left under McDermott's contract, which was the largest subsea contract ever awarded at the time, the company said. Most of the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) for the subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) contract awarded in January 2012 was completed by the end of 2017.The final offshore campaign involved subsea tiebacks to new drill centers and

Hunting Hydrocarbons

during seismic surveys and, it hopes soon, also around offshore wind piling operations monitoring. For PAM operations, broad spectrum hydrophones are mounted to the gliders to record low and high frequency acoustics from marine life.Blue Ocean’s first PAM survey was in 2016, offshore Western Australia, during 3D seismic acquisition operations. The glider was deployed in the survey area and traversed four days, covering about 30km/day, depending on the current, before performing simultaneous operations with the seismic vessel. The glider, operating in about 200m water depth, had two payloads:

Roadmap for Renewable Energy

wind power growth; according to WindEurope, the region enjoyed a record year in 2017, adding 14GW to the renewables grid. In the Asia Pacific area, too, a substantial proposal is underway. The Asian Renewable Energy Hub encompasses 7,000 square kilometers of land in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia, and is set to house both solar and wind power generation facilities for the purpose of transmitting the energy produced to South East Asia.  The Asian Renewable Energy Hub entails the construction of 1,200 300m-high onshore wind turbines, with a further 2400MW from solar panels &ndash
