Qatar Petroleum has awarded the FEED (front end engineering design) contract to McDermott for the North Field Expansion Project’s offshore pipelines and topsides facilities.
The scope of this FEED includes engineering design for eight unmanned wellhead platform topsides, four 38” trunk lines and four 28” intrafield lines, and is expected to take 12 months to complete.
McDermott also recently won an engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract for eight new offshore jackets as part of the North Field offshore facilities expansion.
Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President & CEO of Qatar Petroleum, said: “The offshore topsides and pipelines are an important component of the North Field Expansion Project’s implementation. We are pleased to have McDermott take part in this important effort.”
His Excellency Minister Al-Kaabi added: “This award comes on the heels of a series of announcements for other components of the project that are all important milestones towards delivering our strategy of increasing Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 77 to 110 million tons per annum, which is progressing well and according to plan on all fronts.”
Qatargas is entrusted with executing this mega-project on behalf of Qatar Petroleum.
