McDermott signs agreement for Gulfport spoolbase

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – McDermott International Inc. says that one of its subsidiaries has signed a lease agreement with the Mississippi Development Authority and the Mississippi State Port Authority for the exclusive right to operate a spoolbase and marine operations base in the Port of Gulfport.

McDermott expects the facility, designed to serve projects from the Gulf of Mexico, will be available in early 2016.

The new facility in Gulfport, located on the Mississippi coastline, will be used to fabricate steel pipe stalklines through advanced welding processes for use in offshore reeled pipelay operations. The new 50-acre facility will feature a fabrication building and stalk racks as well as a dedicated dock for vessel berthing to accommodate reeling pipe onto the company’s fleet of specialized vessels for transport and installation offshore.
