Houston, September 17 - Neftegaz.RU. Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan Offshore Engineering (QMW), McDermott’s joint venture with China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation, has been awarded work to provide 3 complex modules for the project.

The Arctic LNG 2 development in the Gydan Peninsula of West Siberia, operated by Russia’s 2nd-largest LNG producer Novatek, will have capacity to produce 19.8 million tonnes per year once complete.

Fabrication of the modules will take place at QMW’s 111-acre yard in Qingdao, China, due to begin at the end of this year and completed in mid-2022.

The firm said the award recognises “excellent” work carried out earlier on the Yamal LNG project in the Russian Arctic. McDermott defines a large contract as between $50 million and $250 million.

"This award recognizes QMW's experience and excellent performance in the Arctic on an earlier Yamal LNG project. It is further evidence that QMW is a tier one module fabricator in the LNG market. Fabrication will be completed in QMW's mega module workshop which provides increased certainty for safety, schedule and successful project delivery," said McDermott's senior VP Asia-Pacific, Ian Prescott.

The scope includes the fabrication of 3 Pre-Assembled Unit Complex Process Modules. QMW will undertake fabrication engineering, partial procurement, construction and pre-commissioning scope. Fabrication for the modules is scheduled to commence at the end of 2019 and be completed in mid-2022.
