Worley to deliver brownfield modification services to Chevron in Gulf of Mexico
Worley has won an engineering and procurement services contract from Chevron to deliver brownfield modification services for a subsea tieback to one of the latter’s deepwater production facilities in the Gulf of Mexico.
According to the Australian engineering services company, the project will set up a subsea tieback development scheme for the Ballymore field, which is located in Mississippi Canyon Block 607. The Ballymore field is contained in a water depth of 2,006 m (6,581 ft).
The tieback will enable access to Ballymore reserves, said Worley.
Both the subsea and topsides designs will be supported by the Australian engineering services company. Besides, Worley will be responsible for the procurement services for the topsides scope of work.
Amanda Knost – Worley senior vice president of the US Gulf Coast region said: “Through this tieback, we can help Chevron access additional reserves and support its objective of executing capital projects safely and at a low, incremental cost of development.”
Worley said that the topsides services and project management will be managed by its US Gulf Coast team. Intecsea, which is part of the company’s Advisian consulting business, will support the subsea part of the project.
