    McDermott installs deck on Canyon Station platform

    Projects and Operations // August 16, 2002
    McDermott's derrick/lay barge DB 50 has successfully installed a 3,450 ton deck for the Williams Canyon Station production platform on East Main Pass Block 261 in 299 feet of water offshore Alabama.

    Paragon's scope of work for the Williams project included project management, engineering design/drafting, procurement and fabrication inspection for the four-pile, four-legged platform, which completed hook-up and commissioning on schedule in late June.

    The jacket completed installation in October 2001, and the deck was installed in late May 2002.

    Hickman Brown, Paragon's project manager, says the cycle time on the fast-track project - from Paragon's contract award to platform installation - was 18.5 months.
    The project included an innovative and cost-effective methanol recovery and reuse process, as developed by Paragon, to ensure the flow of deepwater production across extended distances.

    The Williams Canyon Station facility will treat, process and handle natural gas and gas liquids from 10 subsea deepwater wells 55 miles south of the platform in the Camden Hills, Kings Peak and Aconcagua Fields in 5,000 to 7,200 feet of water.
