McDermott awarded subsea fabrication contract

Houston-headquartered McDermott International has been awarded a subsea production system fabrication subcontract for the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim natural gas project off Africa.

The scope of work, which will be performed by McDermott’s facility in Batam, includes project management, fabrication engineering, procurement, pre-assembly, fabrication, acceptance tests and system-integration tests.

Ian Prescott, senior VP for Asia Pacific at McDermott, commented: “This award reflects the value of holistic project planning to get the best outcomes for the project and the customer. Fabrication for both the SPS and subsea, umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) scope for the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project will now be undertaken in McDermott’s yard in Batam, which enables a fast-tracked fabrication schedule to be delivered.”

Work is scheduled to begin in the third quarter 2019 and be completed by the third quarter 2020.
