Houston, Texas-headquartered American contractor McDermott will mobilise teams from its Chennai (India), Batam (Indonesia), and Middle East offices to deliver an engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contract worth $500-750m that it has won for a project in the Arabian Gulf.

McDermott has yet to reveal details of the project’s location or client. However, in a statement, the company said that the new contract covers new facility construction, comprising six offshore jackets and three associated topsides.

The EPCI deal also includes the development of an 8km-long pipeline built using 71cm corrosion-resistant alloy cladding.

Also due to be developed are two inter-platform bridges, 8km of composite cables, and “brownfield works at existing offshore facilities”.

McDermott is due to deliver the contract in 34 months, with the award to impact the New York Stock Exchange-listed contractor’s Q1 2019 backlog.

Fabrication work for the project will be implemented at McDermott’s facilities in Batam.

In a press statement, the company said it “plans to use its engineering teams in the Middle East and Chennai” for the development.

McDermott’s global fleet will deliver the Emerald Sea, Derrick Barge 30, and Derrick Barge 50 vessels to implement installation and completion work for the development.
