Malaysia Contracts for McDermott
- Business & Finance
McDermott has secured two contracts to provide transportation and installation of offshore structures, pipelines and pre-commissioning work for the Pan Malaysia field development located off Sarawak, Malaysia.
One contract is from Sarawak Shell Berhad (SSB) and one from Sapura Exploration and Production (SEP).
McDermott’s scope of work for SSB includes the transportation and installation of jackets, topsides and pipelines for the Gorek gas field.
The company’s scope of work for SEP includes the transportation and installation of jackets, topsides and pipelines for the Larak and Bakong gas fields.
McDermott will also fabricate risers and spools for SSB and SEP.
“These two contracts give McDermott the opportunity to strengthen our long-standing relationship with Sarawak Shell Berhad and develop a new relationship with Sapura Exploration and Production,” said Ian Prescott, McDermott’s senior vice president for Asia Pacific. “They also provide an excellent opportunity for McDermott to execute offshore projects in Malaysia using many of the company’s assets, from our highly-skilled and talented workforce to our marine assets and our global fabrication expertise.”
McDermott is scheduled to use its installation vessel, the Malaysian-registered Derrick Barge 30, for these jobs.
The project management team will be based in Kuala Lumpur using the maximum Malaysian workforce to meet the local content requirement.
Fabrication of the risers and spools is scheduled to be performed at McDermott’s global execution center in Batam, Indonesia.
The offshore campaign is expected to begin in Q2 2019.
