The first scope of work consists of transportation and installation of more than 62 miles of pipelines including corrosion resistant alloy clad pipelines, as well as umbilicals and cables

Work is expected to be executed through 2017.

The full scope of work will be executed in annual work plans that are expected to be confirmed over the coming years as BSP finalises its development plans and budgets.

 “Earlier this year we established a dedicated presence in Brunei and demonstrated outstanding execution delivering project certainty on the transportation and installation of four jackets for the BSP Champion Waterflood B2/3 development,” said David Dickson, McDermott president and chief executive officer.

“BSP’s confidence in our efficient planning, seamless offshore operations and excellent safety performance is demonstrated by the award of this significant new project, which is one of BSP’s largest contracts in recent years.”

The first scope of work consists of transportation and installation of more than 62 miles of pipelines including corrosion resistant alloy clad pipelines, as well as umbilicals and cables.

The work identified for 2015 will be included in McDermott’s fourth quarter 2014 backlog.

The McDermott Derrick Barge 30 and other vessels will be mobilised to support this initial work which will include hydro testing, pre-commissioning and salvage of redundant risers.

Brunei has significant long-term plans to increase investment and production in its energy sector, and the successful installation of these new pipelines in the Champion and Ampa fields is expected to help ensure the continuity of these mature reserves. McDermott’s contribution in developing these facilities plays a vital role in helping Brunei meet its energy goals.
