McDermott wins EPCI contract in the Arabian Gulf

A subsidiary of McDermott International secured a large engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) project by an operator in the Arabian Gulf. The award is included in McDermott’s fourth quarter 2013 backlog.

The contract includes the engineering, fabrication, transportation and installation of four new offshore topsides facilities, plus modification of two existing production facilities to extend the current deck space and maximise the size of modules. The combined total weight of the structures will exceed 3,500t. The scope of work also includes the installation of an approximately 15km long 12” subsea pipeline. Water depths range between 10m to 14m. 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.

Engineering and fabrication for the project 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 commence in the fourth quarter of 2014, with project completion, including hook-up and commissioning, planned for the first quarter of 2015.
