J.

Financial terms of the contract are not being disclosed.

SparTEC, Inc., a subsidiary of J. Ray McDermott, will act as the general contractor and overall project manager for the design engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation and commissioning of the Medusa offshore production facility, which will be located in 2,223 ft. of water in Mississippi Canyon Block 582.

“We are extremely honored and excited to be selected by Murphy to bring Medusa to fruition,” said Bobby Rawle, president of J.

Ray McDermott Engineering LLC will be responsible for the detailed engineering of the platform’s hull, mooring and topsides. J. Ray McDermott’s Jebel Ali Fabrication Yard, located in the United Arab Emirates, will fabricate the spar hull.

The topsides will be prefabricated into subassemblies at J. Ray McDermott’s TNG facility in Veracruz, Mexico, then assembled and outfitted at the company’s newly reopened Harbor Island Fabrication yard near Corpus Christi, Texas. The work at Harbor Island will be supported by the strategic alliance with Bay Ltd.
