McDermott awarded Myanmar FEED contract

Houston-headquartered McDermott International has been awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract by Posco for the Shwe Phase 3 gas field development, offshore Myanmar.

The project scope includes FEED services for a new compression platform, a bridge link and modifications to the existing platform.

Ian Prescott, senior VP Asia Pacific at McDermott, commented: “This award is a testament to McDermott’s excellent FEED and EPCIC project delivery capability on large central production platform facilities. We look forward to continuing to work with Posco International Corporation to meet Myanmar’s growing energy demands.”

Work will be undertaken at McDermott’s engineering centre in Kuala Lumpur, with completion expected in the second quarter of 2020.
