McDermott wins Shell contract

McDermott International was awarded a contract from Shell Exploration and Production for subsea umbilical and flowline installation at the Perdido development.

The development is located 370 kilometres south of Galveston, Texas, in the Gulf of Mexico.

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 and pre-commissioning.

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

The Perdido development is Shell’s deep-water oil and gas project that unlocked a new frontier of energy development in the Gulf of Mexico’s Lower Tertiary Paleogene.

The contract award is reflected in McDermott’s second quarter or 2018 backlog.
