American offshore engineering, construction, and services provider McDermott has won a contract from Delta Offshore Energy to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services for a subsea gas pipeline at its Sisyphus project. Moreover, McDermott has been awarded the pre-engineering geotechnical and geophysical survey services being carried out as a part of the FEED scope.
The pipeline will connect a regasification platform, located approximately 22 miles (35 kilometers) offshore, to a planned 3,200 MW power plant in Bac Lieu Province, Vietnam. The Bac Lieu LNG-to-power project is an integrated two million ton per annum (Mtpa) floating LNG import terminal and a 3.2GW combined-cycle power plant. The development of the integrated facility is estimated to cost approximately USD 4.3 billion.
According to McDermott , key factors that allowed it to secure the contract include its extensive experience in Vietnam and recent work for Delta Offshore Energy. McDermott anticipates the FEED contract will be converted into an EPCI contract in the first quarter of 2021.
