McDermott will supply platforms and flowlines

McDermott's Batam Island facilities

McDermott International's Indonesian subsidiary has been awarded a contract by PC Muriah Ltd., an affiliate of PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd., to develop offshore surface facilities and an infield flowline for the Kepodang Field, located approximately 180 km northeast of Semarang, Central Java, in water depths of up to 70m. The project will be included in McDermott's 4Q 2012 backlog.

The contract's scope includes the procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of a 5,802-tonne central processing platform; a 1,298-tonne wellhead platform; a 2.7 km-long, 10-inch diameter infield flowline; and installation of remote control facilities at the onshore receiving facilities.

Procurement engineering has already started and fabrication of the facilities will take place at the McDermott Batam yard in Indonesia. Transportation and installation will involve a diverse range of vessels from the McDermott fleet, including a 300-class float-over barge that will install the central processing platform’s 3,078-ton topsides.

Project completion, including hookup and commissioning, is expected to be in the 4Q 2014.
