Offshore staff

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).

The Atlanta EPS is Phase 1 of the Atlanta field development, located in 5,085 ft (1,550 m) of water in block BS-4 of the Santos basin. QGEP expects to produce its first oil from the offshore Atlanta field in the first half of 2016.

McDermott will be responsible for the engineering and offshore installation of all subsea hardware, including flexible pipes, umbilicals, umbilical termination assemblies, subsea pump skids, suction piles, and associated equipment.

McDermott’s installation vessel NO102 will conduct on-site work as soon as QGEP’s FPSO is available.
