Offshore staff

HOUSTON – McDermott International Inc. has received further pipeline work for 2017 under a multi-year offshore installation contract with Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sdn. Bhd.

The work includes transportation and installation (T&I) of pipelines and umbilicals for the Fairley and Ampa fields offshore Brunei.

The full scope of work for next year’s campaign is expected to include T&I for 20 mi (32 km) of pipelines, with the associated beach and pipeline crossings, tie-ins, riser installation, and pre-commissioning of the completed system. The 2017 campaign is part of a three-year work installation contract signed in 2014.

McDermott’s Derrick Barge 30 (DB 30) will continue to be deployed for the execution of pipeline work in Brunei. Both the DB 30 and Emerald Sea diving support vessel were deployed for the successful 2015 campaign.

Hugh Cuthbertson, vice president, Asia, said: “Brunei has significant long-term plans to increase investment and production in its energy sector and the successful installation of these new pipelines in the Ampa and Fairley fields is expected to help ensure production continuity of the mature reserves…

“Our contribution in developing these facilities plays a vital role in helping Brunei Shell Petroleum meet its production targets and Brunei meet its energy goals.”
