McDermott Scotland Is Awarded $150 Million In Offshore Contracts

McDermott Scotland, a division of McDermott International, Inc., the major overseas marine construction subsidiary of McDermott Incorporated, has recently been awarded three contracts with a total value of more than $150 million.

These contracts call for: • Fabrication of the 15,000- metric-ton topside facilities for Conoco U.K. Ltd.'s Hutton Project, the world's first tension-leg platform. McDermott has already fabricated the subsea drilling template for this project. Tension leg platforms are floating platforms tethered to the seafloor.

Their use opens opportunities for developing petroleum reserves in extremely deep waters, reserves that had been technically impossible or uneconomical to develop using conventional means. The contract is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 1983.

• Fabrication of the 1,500- metric-ton power generation module for Marathon Oil U.K. Ltd.'s Brae Field platform. The module will contain four electrical generating units with an output of 20 megawatts per unit and their controls. Completion is scheduled for April 1982. McDermott Scotland is also fabricating the 21,000- metric-ton jacket and 36 piles with 84-inch diameters for the Brae Field platform.

• Fabrication of 5,000 metric tons of piling for Mobil North Sea Ltd.'s Beryl "B" platform. Mc- Dermott Scotland is fabricating 36 piles 72 inches in diameter, which are scheduled to be completed by the spring of 1983.

McDermott Incorporated is a leading international energy services company. The company and its subsidiaries provide engineering and construction services to the offshore oil and gas industry, and manufacture steam generating equipment, tubular products, insulating products, and automated machine tools.
