McDermott International has been selected by BHP to provide a marine installation campaign for the Shenzi Subsea Multiphase Pumping Project (SSMPP). The project is located approximately 138 miles (222 km) offshore in the Gulf of Mexico at a water depth of 4400 ft.

The scope of the contract includes project management; detailed design and fabrication for a pump station suction pile; umbilical installation and flexible jumpers and flying leads installation; transport of all materials and equipment; and pre-commissioning services and other necessary testing and surveys.

Engineering, procurement and project management services will be led by McDermott's Houston engineering group. McDermott's North Ocean 102 vessel will be used for the transport and installation of the material and equipment.

The project will commence immediately and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2022.

"We look forward to continuing our partnership with BHP through this latest contract award," said Mark Coscio, Senior Vice President for McDermott's North, Central and South America region. "McDermott's North Ocean 102 vessel is uniquely qualified to transport and install the materials and equipment for the Shenzi project scope—as well as perform pre-commissioning testing and other necessary surveys to safely deliver for the customer."

McDermott is currently providing the FEED of a semi-submersible FPU for the Trion Project in the Gulf of Mexico, another BHP project, in partnership with Pemex. McDermott was previously awarded and completed services under an initial pre-FEED contract for the Trion FPU.
