Liwan 3-1 was a fast-track, natural-gas development project critical to the growth strategy of our customer, Husky Oil China Ltd. The massive undertaking encompassed a new platform, pipelines, control systems, a gas plant and a subsea chemical injection module to prevent ice-like hydratres from forming and clogging deep-sea natural-gas lines.
We contributed our experience in managing vast, complex, and physically challenging execution of deepwater hydrocarbons projects to a team with its own offshore and platform construction expertise. That team was a partnership of Husky and China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC).
Liwan 3-1 produces natural gas at a rate of some 300 million cubic feet (nearly 8.5 million cubic meters) per day.
