Water depths in the field range from 787 to 885 feet (240 to 270 meters).

Fabrication of the subsea URF equipment will be carried out at McDermott's fabrication facility in Batam, Indonesia.
Utilizing the Subsea Connect execution model, BHGE will deliver the SPS scope, including vertical christmas trees, associated production control systems, distribution equipment and topside controls as well as associated installation and commissioning support services.
This award follows an earlier award granted to BHGE in 1Q 2019, including four christmas trees and associated SPS equipment for in-fill development.
Offshore installation of the URF and SPS equipment will commence in 2020 and be completed in 2023.
The field development will be carried out using state-of-the-art assets, including McDermott's derrick lay vessel, DLV 2000. ■
