McDermott secures Shell's Gulf of Mexico project

LONDON, August 10, 2018

McDermott International, a leading engineering, procurement, construction and installation company, has won a contract from Shell Exploration and Production Company, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell (Shell), for subsea umbilical and flowline installation at the Perdido development, located 230 miles south of Galveston, Texas, in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Perdido development is Shell's pioneering deep water oil and gas project that unlocked a new frontier of energy development in the Gulf of Mexico's Lower Tertiary Paleogene. The Perdido production hub produces oil and gas from the Silvertip, Great White and Tobago fields.

The scope of work includes project management of engineering and installation of a flexible flowline from the well to a pipeline end termination; installation of an umbilical; installation of four electrical flying leads (EFLs) and pre-commissioning, said a statement from the company.

Project management and engineering will be performed in Houston, Texas, with offshore installation by McDermott's North Ocean 102 targeted for completion in 2019, it stated.

"This award strengthens McDermott's relationship with Shell as we work together to safely and competitively deliver this next-generation deepwater energy project," remarked Richard Heo, McDermott's senior VP for North, Central and South America.

"Our proven track record of project execution in the Gulf of Mexico, industry-leading subsea capabilities and integrated business model will help drive efficiency while maintaining our uncompromising commitment to safety and quality," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
