McDermott International announced it has been awarded a sizeable transport and installation contract by an upstream oil and gas operator for a project offshore Trinidad, West Indies.
The contract award includes the transport and installation of a 1000-tonne deck and 1600-tonne jacket. It also covers the onshore fabrication, reel-lay and pre-commissioning of 14,000ft of 14in pipeline that includes the pull-in of a 12in riser at an existing offshore platform scheduled to be completed using McDermott vessels, Derrick Barge 50 (DB50) and the North Ocean 105 (NO105).
Project completion is expected to be in the Q3 of 2016. The pipeline will be welded at McDermott’s new Gulfport, Mississippi, spoolbase.
“We’re pleased to be able to provide an integrated approach involving our new spoolbase in Gulfport, the NO105 and the DB50 that addresses all project drivers to deliver the best overall solution,” said Scott Munro, vice president for Americas, Europe and Africa.
Revenue from the award will be included in McDermott’s Q4 2015 backlog.
