Exova scoops testing services deal with McDermott

Global testing company Exova has been awarded a contract with McDermott to deliver a range of testing services for offshore oil & gas fabrication projects.

Exova said on Thursday that it would be working from its Abu Dhabi laboratory, with support from Al Futtaim Exova Metallurgy in Dubai.

The company added it would provide weld procedure qualification, welder qualification, coatings procedure approval, and component forensic analysis in support of McDermott’s structural and pipeline production welding facility.

Exova will conduct various tests to provide the qualifications, including mechanical, fracture mechanics, and sour gas corrosion testing, as well as coatings and failure analysis.

Neil Hold, UAE Operations Manager at Exova, said: “McDermott recently won several offshore fabrication contracts and we’re pleased to be supporting them to deliver quality pipeline production.

“Our Abu Dhabi laboratory has the capabilities and capacity to provide the required technically demanding qualifications on time while managing McDermott’s high volume of activity.”

McDermott, a provider of integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) services for upstream field developments, has increased its activity in the Middle East in recent months.

In November last year, the company opened a new office in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. At the beginning of 2017, the company won two contracts in the Middle East, namely, an EPCI contract with Saudi Aramco and a pipelay contract with an unnamed client.

Earlier this month, McDermott unveiled plans to build a new fabrication and marine complex for the construction of offshore production solutions at Ras Al Khair, Saudi Arabia.
