McDermott International Inc. (NYSE: MDR) has been awarded a detailed engineering and long lead procurement services contract from BP Trinidad & Tobago LLC for the Cassia C Compression platform, the company said on March 5.
The platform is located 40 miles (65 km) off the southeast coast of Trinidad and Tobago.
The contract follows McDermott’s award for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning contract for the Angelin project by BP last year.
“This award is significant as we continue to build our relationship with BP through strong collaboration and predictability in our execution,” Scott Munro, McDermott’s vice president for Americas, Europe and Africa, said. “We plan to leverage off our successful experience with BP on the Angelin project.”
The Cassia C Compression project includes a new unmanned compression platform for the existing Cassia complex. The facility will provide gas compression to the Cassia complex via a new bridge connected to Cassia B. Cassia C is BP’s third Cassia platform, handling gas coming from its operations in the prolific Columbus basin.
McDermott expects to use the Project Lifecycle Management module from its new digital platform Gemini XD to deliver advanced technology through project execution and the development of a digital twin of the complete system.
McDermott’s team in Houston plans to lead the engineering and execution with support from the company’s engineering center in Chennai, India.
