McDermott International Inc. has announced that it has been awarded a sizeable fabrication subcontract for the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim natural gas project.

Ian Prescott, Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific, said: “This award reflects the value of holistic project planning to get the best outcomes for the project and the customer. Fabrication for both the subsea production system (SPS) and subsea, umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) scope for the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project will now be undertaken in McDermott's yard in Batam, which enables a fast-tracked fabrication schedule to be delivered.”

According to the statement, the scope of work for fabrication of the SPS includes the following: project management; fabrication engineering; procurement; pre-assembly; fabrication; acceptance tests; and system-integration tests. The work is scheduled to begin in 3Q19 and is expected to be completed by 3Q20 in McDermott's fabrication facility in Batam, Indonesia. As part of a previous award, McDermott is also fabricating the pipeline structures and riser structure for the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim Project in Batam.

McDermott claims the award will be reflected in its 3Q19 backlog.
