HOUSTON – McDermott International has won a contract with Petronas affiliate PC Muriah Ltd. to develop offshore surface facilities and an infield flowline for the Kepodang field off Indonesia.

The contract covers the procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of a 5,802-tonne (6,396-ton) central processing platform and a 2.7-km (1.7-mi), 10-in. diameter flowline, and installation of remote control facilities at the onshore receiving site.

The value of the award was not disclosed.

Procurement engineering is underway, McDermott said. Fabrication will take place at the company’s Batam yard in Indonesia. Hookup and commissioning are scheduled to be complete 4Q 2014.

Petronas in 2005 signed a gas sales agreement with Indonesian power company Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) to supply up to 145MMcfd of gas from the Kepodang field in the Petronas-operated Muriah block. Kepodang is in water depths of up to 70 m (230 ft) about 180 km (112 mi) northeast of Semarang, Central Java.

Petronas acquired the Muriah block from BP in 2004 and has reportedlycommitted $545 million to develop Kepodang.
