McDermott International has been awarded a large engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) project by a company operating in the Arabian Gulf.
The contract includes the engineering, fabrication, transportation and installation of four new offshore topsides facilities, as well as the modification of two existing production facilities to extend the current deck space and maximize the size of the modules.
The combined total weight of the structures will exceed 3500 metric t. The scope of the contract also includes the installation of a 12-inch subsea pipeline, approximately 15 km in length. Water depths range between 10 m to 14 m.
David Dickson, McDermott CEO, commented: “The project is part of a plan to boost oil production from existing fields, by the implementation of gas injection technology, and the installation of new production wells. Our ability to provide sound technical solutions in both brownfield and greenfield scopes supported by our regional capabilities in providing fabrication, marine and manpower resources has helped us secure this award.”
Project engineering and fabrication will be undertaken by McDermott at its Jebel Ali facility in Dubai, with transportation and installation carried out by vessels from the McDermott global marine fleet. Offshore operations are expected to begin in Q4 2014, with project completion expected by Q1 2015.
