McDermott International has been awarded further pipeline work for 2017 under a multi-year offshore installation contract with Brunei Shell Petroleum Company (BSP).
The work includes transportation and installation of pipelines and umbilicals in the Fairley and Ampa fields offshore Brunei.
The full scope of work for the 2017 campaign is expected to include transportation and installation for 20 miles of pipelines, with the associated beach and pipeline crossings, tie-ins, riser installation and pre-commissioning of the completed system, the company informed.
The 2017 campaign is part of a three-year work installation contract signed in 2014.
“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,” said Hugh Cuthbertson, vice president, Asia.
The 2017 campaign will see McDermott’s Derrick Barge 30 (DB 30) 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 2015 campaign.
