Offshore installation and construction specialist McDermott has won a deal to install subsea equipment at Shell’s Silvertip field, which is part of Shell’s Perdido development in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
McDermott said on Tuesday the contract was for subsea umbilical and flowline installation at the Perdido development, located 230 miles south of Galveston, Texas, in the Gulf of Mexico.
The scope of work includes project management of engineering and installation of a flexible flowline from the well to a pipeline end termination; installation of an umbilical; installation of four electrical flying leads (EFLs) and pre-commissioning.
Project management and engineering will be performed in Houston, Texas, with offshore installation by McDermott’s North Ocean 102 vessel targeted for completion in 2019.
The Perdido production hub produces oil and gas from the Silvertip, Great White, and Tobago fields.
McDermott did not share the financial details of the contract.
