McDermott wins Indonesia subsea fabrication contract

Houston: McDermott International has been awarded a sizeable manifold and subsea safety isolation valve module fabrication contract by FMC Technologies for the Jangkrik fields located offshore Kalimantan, Indonesia.

The project, which will be completed at McDermott’s yard in Batam, includes fabrication of around 3,200 tons of subsea manifolds and subsea safety isolation valve modules to be installed in water depths ranging from approximately 329 feet to 1,640 feet.

Hugh Cuthbertson, vp and gm Asia Pacific for McDermott, said: “Our demonstrated track record in the delivery of customized, high-quality subsea solutions from our Indonesian fabrication facility on Batam Island, including the Gorgon subsea structures fabrication project and the Ichthys engineering, procurement, construction and installation project, positions us strategically to support FMC Technologies in fabricating the Jangkrik Complex subsea infrastructure.

“McDermott is also pleased to continue its longstanding commitment to providing in-country value to Indonesia through its delivery of projects from its Batam Island facility to the Indonesian energy industry.”

Fabrication work has begun and the contract is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2016.
