McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE:MDR) has announced it has been awarded a sizeable brownfield project by Qatar Petroleum for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of four wellhead jackets.
Installation of two jackets in the Bul-Hanine field offshore east of Doha has been scheduled to be completed by December 2016 with the remaining two scheduled for completion in July 2017. The total weight of all four structures combined is 3495 t.
“McDermott’s integrated EPCI capabilities are critical to these offshore projects,” said Tom Mackie, McDermott’s Vice President, Middle East. “This award is another example of collaboration with our customers to meet their critical production and project requirements. The award is expected to be executed with McDermott’s internal resources and backed by our proven track record of designing, building and installing offshore and subsea solutions.”
Revenue for the order will be included in McDermott’s third quarter 2015 backlog.
McDermott has been delivering projects in Qatar for more than 40 years. Detailed design engineering and procurement is expected to be performed by McDermott’s teams in Dubai, U.A.E. Jackets are scheduled for fabrication by McDermott’s Dubai, U.A.E.-based fabrication facility. Vessels from the McDermott global fleet are scheduled to undertake the installation work.
