McDermott awarded subsea contract by Shell

McDermott International has been awarded a major contract by Shell Exploration and Production for subsea umbilical and flowline installation at the Great White Frio development in Alaminos Canyon Block 857 in the US Gulf of Mexico.

The scope of work includes project management and engineering, installation of a flexible flowline from the well to a pipeline end termination, and installation of one steel flying lead and two electrical flying leads in a water depth of 8,000 feet.

The offshore installation works are scheduled for completion in mid-2019.

“This award demonstrates McDermott’s commitment to helping Shell safely and competitively deliver Great White – their next-generation deep-water energy project. McDermott’s proven track record of project execution in the Gulf of Mexico with Shell, combined with our industry-leading subsea capabilities and integrated business model, will help drive efficiency while maintaining our uncompromising commitment to safety and quality,” said Richard Heo, McDermott’s senior vice president for North, Central and South America.
