EnerMech has been awarded its first contract by Subsea 7 in the Australian oil and gas market. The mechanical engineering group will perform a range of subsea flowline and umbilical pre-commissioning on the Woodside-operated North West Shelf (NWS) Project’s Persephone project and North Rankin Complex in Western Australia.
The workscope includes flooding, hydro-testing and dewatering of flow lines and well jumpers, and testing all hydraulic, electrical and optical cores on the main line umbilical, electrical flying leads and hydraulic flying leads with work expected to start in December.
EnerMech already undertakes specialist testing work on the North Rankin Complex for Wood Group PSN so they can offer continuity and familiarity with Woodside and North Rankin requirements.
“We place a heavy emphasis on innovation and trying to find fresh solutions to client requirements and our proposal fitted well with Woodside’s specification for the flooding, cleaning and testing of offshore pipelines,” said Allan Hart, Australia regional director, EnerMech.
