US offshore services firm McDermott International has been awarded a contract by LLOG Exploration Company for deepwater subsea pipeline tiebacks and structures from the Stonefly development to the Ram Powell platform, off New Orleans, Louisiana.
The contract scope includes project management, installation engineering, subsea structure and spoolbase stalk fabrication, and subsea installation of the subsea infrastructure to support a two well subsea tieback from the Stonefly development site to the Ram Powell platform.
Richard Heo, senior VP for North, Central and South America at McDermott, commented: “This award demonstrates McDermott’s commitment to helping LLOG safely and competitively deliver the Stonefly development. McDermott’s proven track record of project execution in the Gulf of Mexico, combined with our industry-leading subsea capabilities and integrated business model, will help drive efficiency while maintaining our uncompromising commitment to safety and quality.”
Structure design and installation engineering has already begun, and McDermott expects to install the subsea tiebacks and structures using North Ocean 105 in the third quarter of 2019.
