HOUSTON – Chevron USA Inc. has awarded McDermott International Inc. (NYSE:MDR) a contract to transport and install subsea umbilicals, manifolds, jumpers, and flying leads for the brownfield expansion of the Jack and St. Malo fields in the GoM.

The installation campaign is expected to start in 2Q 2016.
