McDermott bags EPCI contract in the Arabian Gulf


Under the contract McDermott will deliver the engineering, fabrication, transportation and installation of four new offshore topsides facilities, as well as the modification of two existing production facilities to increase the capacity of the current deck and the size of the modules.


The contract also incorporates the installation of a 12-inch subsea pipeline, about 15 km in length. The depth of the water ranges between 10 m to 14 m.


The total weight of the structures will exceed 3500 metric tonnes.


McDermott will carry out project engineering and fabrication at its Jebel Ali facility in Dubai, while transportation and installation will be done by vessels from the firm’s global marine fleet.


Offshore works are set to begin in the last quarter of 2014, with project completion expected by the start of 2015.


McDermott is one of the leading companies for the provision of integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) services for upstream field developments worldwide. The company delivers fixed and floating production facilities, pipelines and subsea systems from concept to commissioning for complex Offshore and Subsea oil and gas projects to help oil companies safely produce and transport hydrocarbons. 


David Dickson, McDermott CEO, commented: “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. Our ability to provide sound technical solutions in both brownfield and greenfield scopes supported by our regional capabilities in providing fabrication, marine and manpower resources has helped us secure this award.”
