McDermott International continues its winning streak in the Middle East with a mega offshore contract from QatarEnergy, a long standing key customer, to deliver engineering, procurement, construction and installation for the North Field East Topsides and the North Field East Offshore Pipelines and Subsea Cables projects, with an option included to also award the North Field South Offshore Topsides, representing one of the largest single contracts McDermott has been awarded in its company history.McDermott has decades of experience delivering world-class EPCI projects in Qatar, a historically strategic market. The project will be managed and engineered from the McDermott Doha office with significant fabrication taking place at QFAB, the McDermott-Nakilat joint venture fabrication yard in Qatar, building end-to-end execution capability in Qatar and significantly enhancing the localization Program.The NFE development will provide feed gas into the four new LNG Trains currently under construction and, together, with the NFS infrastructure, which will provide feed gas for the future additional two LNG trains, will enable an increase in total LNG production in Qatar from 77 million tons per annum to 126 MTPA.The scope of the contract includes the fabrication and installation of eight wellhead topsides (WHT) for NFE and a further five WHT for NFS. The significant subsea pipeline scope includes over 300 miles (500 kilometers) of pipelines and, in addition, McDermott will install over 140 miles (225 kilometers) of 33kV subsea cables and associated works. For the first time, four of these WHT, plus all subsea infrastructure, will be fabricated in QFAB, improving the in-country execution platform to support future energy developments. The remaining fabrication will be done in collaboration with McDermott's facility in Batam, Indonesia.
