McDermott Bags Qatar Petroleum’s North Field Expansion Deal

McDermott International has received a detailed design of offshore jackets contract from Qatar Petroleum for the North field expansion project.

The detailed design of the jackets is an important step towards awarding the procurement, fabrication and installation (EPCI) contract by the end of this year, which will pave the way to beginning of the drilling campaign in 2019.

The awarded scope is part of a larger offshore scope, which consists of six wellhead platforms, jackets and associated intra-field and main trunk lines to shore, to deliver 4.6 BSCFD of gas from Qatar’s North field, the company explained.

The offshore facilities will be integrated with the three new 7.8 MTPA mega LNG –trains, which will increase LNG production from 77 MTPA to 100 MTPA.

Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the president & CEO of Qatar Petroleum said: “This is yet another milestone on the road to implementing one of the most ambitious gas projects in the southern sector of the North field, and starting the first LNG production from the new LNG mega train by the end of 2023. Thereby increasing our LNG production capacity from 77 of 100 million tons per annum.

“With a targeted capacity of 4.6 billion cubic feet per day, the North field expansion project will add about one million barrels per day of oil equivalent to the State of Qatar’s production.”
