McDermott International has been awarded a brownfield contract by RasGas for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of a flow assurance and looping project consisting of 74 miles of 6- and 8-inch pipeline and topside modifications, offshore Qatar.
Work is scheduled for completion by the end of the third quarter of 2017.
“Some 20 years ago, McDermott and RasGas began building what has become a historically strong working relationship,” said Tom Mackie, McDermott’s Vice President, Middle East. “This set the stage for this award. By combining our knowledge of the customer’s current production infrastructure, early collaboration through our ESA, and our unique brownfield capabilities, McDermott provided RasGas with an optimal EPCI solution.”
Engineering, procurement and fabrication is expected to be performed by McDermott’s teams based in Dubai, U.A.E.
Vessels from the McDermott global fleet are expected to undertake the installation work.
