Chet Morrison Contractors completes EPCIC project

04 December 2018

U.S.-based company, Chet Morrison Contractors, was awarded the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract from Trinidad and Tobago’s newest upstream operator, DeNovo Energy Limited (DeNovo). 

Work for the Iguana field development included facilities for three development wells installed through a Conductor Supported Platform (CSP) and a 45 km, 14-inch diameter subsea natural gas export pipeline connecting the Iguana CSP to a newly constructed onshore gas processing unit.

The Iguana field remained undeveloped for more than 34 years until DeNovo became the operator in 2016. The water depth at the Iguana platform is 27 m (88.6 ft), and Morrison safely managed the unique offshore and shore crossing conditions to complete this development in record time. The company successfully installed and commissioned the pipeline and offshore facility in October 2018.
Morrison was able to achieve 80 per cent of local content and safely delivered the project with more than 370,000 combined man-hours while achieving zero recordable incidents (0-TRIR).
