McDermott International said it has been awarded a contract by Qatar Petroleum to carry out front-end engineering and design (FEED) work for offshore wellhead platforms, pipelines and cables associated with the North Field Expansion project.
The contract is worth between $1 million and $50 million, McDermott said.
The scope includes the design of four offshore trunk lines with intra-field pipelines, eight wellhead platforms and power and fiber optic (PFO) subsea cable rings.
The FEED contract will be executed from McDermott's Doha offices, with drafting to be executed in Chennai. Work on the project will begin immediately.
McDermott said the award also includes submission of an EPCI proposal.
In May, Qatar Petroleum said it awarded McDermott the FEED contract for the project’s offshore pipelines and topsides facilities.
