The award includes an option for the North Field South (NFS) project.
The scope of the contract includes the fabrication and installation of eight wellhead topsides for NFE and a further five for NFS. It will deliver more than 300 mi (500 km) of subsea pipelines. The company will also install over 140 mi (225 km) of 33-kV subsea cables and associated works.
For the first time, four of the wellhead topsides, plus all subsea infrastructure, will be built at QFAB, the McDermott-Nakilat joint venture fabrication yard in Qatar. The remaining fabrication will be done in collaboration with the company’s facility in Batam, Indonesia.
The NFE development will provide feed gas into the four new LNG trains that are currently under construction. Together with the NFS infrastructure, which will provide feed gas for two more LNG trains, will increase total LNG production in Qatar from 77 million tons per annum (MTPA) to 126 MTPA.
