HOUSTONMcDermott International has a letter of award for an EPCI contract for an offshore Middle East redevelopment project.

This involves fabrication and installation of four wellhead topsides, a manifold platform and jacket with associated subsea pipelines and brownfield tie-in works.

Combined total weight of the structures would be around 7,000 tons (6,400 metric tons) and includes 47 mi (75 km) of onshore and offshore pipeline and umbilicals.

The award follows delivery by the company last year of four jackets under an earlier phase of the redevelopment project.

Fabrication is set to start next summer with offshore installation getting under way in 2Q 2019

In the same region, the company’s fabrication of theSaudi Aramco long-term agreement II Lump Sum, Header 9, BRRI platform and nine jackets is on schedule. 

The same applies to Aramco’s Marjan power system replacement project, with marine activity for the jacket and deck installation and hook-up work taking place during 3Q.

Engineering, fabrication, and procurement activities associated with the offshoreSafaniya Phase 5 project are progressing well, McDermott adds, with fabrication of the four jackets and three observation platforms on schedule.

The KJO Hout project is largely complete, with the final pipeline tie-in and pre-commissioning due to start soon.
