McDermott secures Tyra contract from Maersk Oil

Offshore engineering specialist McDermott International has secured a contract from Maersk Oil for engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) services for the Tyra Redevelopment project, located in the Danish sector of the North Sea.

McDermott will provide services for two separate work packages for Maersk Oil under the redevelopment project. The company plans to perform project management, engineering and supply chain management from its office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and will fabricate and assemble the structures at its fabrication yard at Batam Island, Indonesia.

The work is expected to commence early 2018 and complete by February, 2020.

“This award heralds our return to the North Sea and is a part of our strategic growth strategy. By executing our part of the Tyra Redevelopment project from Kuala Lumpur and Batam, the project showcases our vertically integrated One McDermott Way approach to project execution and delivery, which demonstrates our global engineering and fabrication capabilities,” said Scott Munro, McDermott’s vice president of Americas, Europe and Africa.
