McDermott nets further offshore Qatar contract from RasGas

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – RasGas Co. has awarded McDermott International a wide-ranging brownfield contract offshore Qatar.

This involves engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of a flow assurance and looping system, comprising 74 mi (119 km) of 6- and 8-in. pipeline, and associated topsides modifications.

All work is due to be completed by the end of the summer in 2017. The company’s teams in Dubai will likely execute engineering, procurement and fabrication, with vessels from the McDermott fleet handling offshore installations.

McDermott has fabricated and installed numerous RasGas facilities offshore Qatar over the past two decades. Under an engineering service agreement the contractor has executed several concept and front-end engineering and design studies, and in addition, it is assisting with the upgrade and replacement of three helidecks.

Earlier this year, Qatar Petroleum contracted McDermott for an unrelated brownfield program offshore Qatar.
