HOUSTON – LLOG Exploration Offshore has awarded McDermott International a lump-sum contract to support the Otis development in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Otis field, in Mississippi Canyon 79, will be developed as a subsea tieback to the Delta House FPS and lies in approximately 3,800 ft (1,158 m) of water.
The contract scope includes project management; engineering, fabrication and installation of a 75,000-ft (22,860-m) insulated rigid flowline and insulated steel catenary riser with associated pipeline end termination and jumper; and, pre-commissioning.
McDermott’s Houston office will perform the overall project management and engineering. The flowline and SCR are scheduled to be assembled and fabricated at McDermott’s new spoolbase facility in Gulfport, Mississippi.
Offshore installation is scheduled to be completed in early 2016 by McDermott deepwater rigid reel Lay Vessel 105.
