McDermott International awarded subsea gas pipeline contract

McDermott International, a fully-integrated provider of engineering and construction solutions for the energy industry, has been awarded a contract by Delta Offshore Energy to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services for a subsea gas pipeline.

The pipeline will connect a regasification platform, located around 22 miles offshore, to the planned 3,200 MW power plant in Bac Lieu Province, Vietnam.

McDermott has also been awarded the pre-engineering geotechnical and geophysical survey services being carried out as part of the FEED scope.

Mark Coscio, senior vice-president for McDermott International's North, Central and South America business, said: “This award illustrates the confidence Delta Offshore Energy and its partners have in McDermott’s ability to deliver a turnkey engineering procurement construction installation (EPCI) solution for the subsea gas pipeline FEED scope for its Sisyphus project.

“We look forward to expanding our partnership and achieving a successful outcome.”

McDermott’s Houston office is leading engineering services, supported by its Kuala Lumpur office, which has a long track record of delivering solutions to customers in Vienam. McDermott will perform project management, execution planning and estimation services. Installation studies will be undertaken by the firm’s marine operations.

The FEED contract is expected to be converted into an EPCI contract in the first quarter of 2021.
