HOUSTON – McDermott International Inc. (NYSE:MDR) and a consortium partner have won the SURF engineering, product supply, and installation scope for the Atlanta early production system (EPS) in the Santos basin offshore Brazil by Brazilian exploration and production company Queiroz Galvão Exploração e Produção SA (QGEP).
