US contractor McDermott International has been awarded further pipeline work for 2017 under a multi-year offshore installation contract with Shell in Brunei, in Asia.
The work includes transportation and installation (T&I) of pipelines and umbilicals in the Fairley and Ampa Fields offshore Brunei.
McDermott said that the full scope of work for the 2017 campaign is expected to include T&I for 20 miles of pipelines, with the associated beach and pipeline crossings, tie-ins, riser installation and pre-commissioning of the completed system.
The 2017 campaign will see McDermott’s Derrick Barge 30 (DB 30) continue to be deployed for the execution of pipeline work in Brunei. Both the DB 30 and Emerald Sea diving support vessel were deployed for the 2015 campaign, which was, according to McDermott, one of the largest shallow water pipeline campaigns undertaken by McDermott Asia in recent years.
