KBR Bags Design Engineering Gig for Jack/St. Malo FPU

Chevron awarded KBR a contract to execute detailed design engineering for the Jack/St. Malo FPU to be located in the Lower Tertiary trend in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

KBR will provide design and engineering support through fabrication for the deep draft semisubmersible including: hull, deck box, accommodations, appurtenances, equipment foundations; mooring system design; and anchor suction piles. The semi will be designed to minimize vessel motion and allow acceptable fatigue lives of the moorings, risers and umbilicals.

The Jack and St. Malo fields are located within 25 miles (40 kilometers) of one another about 280 miles (450 kilometers) south of New Orleans, Louisiana, in water depths of 7,000 feet (2,100 meters). The joint development project is operated by Chevron (50%). Partners include Statoil (25%) and Maersk (25%).
