McDermott International wins contract to develop offshore surface facilities & an infield flowline for the Kepodang Field.

The contract was awarded to McDermott's Indonesian subsidiary by PC Muriah Ltd., an affiliate of PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd.

The field is located approximately 180 kilometers northeast of Semarang, Central Java, in water depths of up to 70 meters.

The award includes the procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of a 5,802-tonne central processing platform; a 1,298-tonne wellhead platform; a 2.7-kilometer-long, 10-inch diameter infield flowline; and installation of remote control facilities at the onshore receiving facilities.

Procurement engineering has already started and fabrication of the facilities will take place at the McDermott Batam yard in Indonesia. Transportation and installation will involve a diverse range of vessels from the McDermott fleet, including a 300-class float-over barge that will install the central processing platform’s 3,078-ton topsides. Project completion, including hookup and commissioning, is expected to be in the fourth quarter of 2014.

"“We are very pleased to undertake this competitively tendered project for Petronas in Indonesia,”" said Scott Cummins, Senior Vice President and General Manager of McDermott Asia Pacific. “"Winning this project is not only a strong testament of our capabilities; it also shows the client’s confidence in our ability to deliver the best value.”"
