US offshore engineering firm McDermott has been awarded a contract for engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) services at an offshore redevelopment project in the Middle East.
The work scope of McDermott includes fabrication and installation of four wellhead topsides, a manifold platform and jacket together with associated subsea pipelines and brownfield tie-in works.
The fabrication work is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2018 and offshore installation is planned to begin in the second quarter of 2019.
“McDermott has been working in the Middle East region for 54 years and has a proven track record of executing complex offshore projects with certainty. The award of this redevelopment contract is a strong testament to our ability to combine the right offshore assets and superior execution strategy,” said Linh Austin, McDermott’s vice president for the Middle East and Caspian.
