McDermott Gets Contracts Valued At $15 Million To Install Offshore Structures

McDermott International, Inc.

has signed contracts worth a total of approximately $15 million (11 million pounds sterling) with Conoco (U.K.) Limited, to install offshore facilities for the Southern Basin Gas Development in the British sector of the North Sea in 1987 and 1988.

The contracts call for 1987 installation of the production, accommodations, and wellhead jackets, as well as link frames on the production and accommodations platforms and decks for the three wellhead jackets. In March 1988, the production deck, accommodations deck, and the Vulcan 2 jacket and production deck will be installed.

The 1988 work will be performed by McDermott's Derrick Barge 102, the world's largest semisubmersible derrick barge. During this operation, the DB102 will perform the heaviest single crane installation when it installs a 4,000-ton (metric) production deck. This huge crane can perform tandem lifts of up to 12,000 metric tons.

Installation engineering work will be performed by McDermott Engineering London, a division of McDermott International. McDermott Europe Marine Services, Ltd., also based in the U.K. will provide management services for the project.
