Audubon Companies’ engineering teams performed the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED), detailed design, procurement, project management, construction management, startup and commissioning for McMoRan’s process and satellite facility. Our team provided the structural design of various project elements, including jackets, decks, flare booms and heliports. The scope of work also included process modeling, equipment sizing and design, electrical engineering, instrument design, high temperatures and pressures, high CO2 and H2S concentrations and associated amine treating. Audubon also collaborated with the well design team on process and interface issues.

Additionally, Audubon Companies field teams provided construction management and vendor surveillance for the fabrication outfitting and offshore installation of the 8-pile and 4-pile platforms, paint inspection I&E inspection, onsite cost tracking and material tracking, as well as HSE oversight. During the design phase Audubon Companies was fully integrated with the client’s project management team and provided constructability reviews, contractor assessments, and operability input for the two ultra-deep gas production facilities. Based in Metairie, Louisiana, the construction team coordinated with contractors and vendors, and managed onshore and offshore logistics throughout south Louisiana and south Texas.
