Houston-based McDermott has been awarded a contract from Anadarko Petroleum for subsea umbilical and flowline installation in support of a tieback to Anadarko-operated Lucius field in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
The Lucius field, located 275 miles southeast of Galveston, Texas, started production in January 2015.
The Lucius Subsequent Development is a subsea tieback to the Anadarko-operated Lucius spar, located in Keathley Canyon 875 block. The new development is in approximately 7,400 feet of water at Keathley Canyon 919 block.
McDermott will provide engineering, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of subsea infield flowlines, production umbilicals and related subsea equipment, the company said on Wednesday.
“We appreciate Anadarko’s confidence in our experience and ability to deliver this project on schedule with the highest quality in the Gulf of Mexico,” said McDermott Vice President for the Americas, Europe and Africa Scott Munro.
McDermott’s operating center in Houston, Texas, will perform project management and engineering. The flowlines will be fabricated at McDermott’s spoolbase facility in Gulfport, Mississippi.
The contract award will be reflected in McDermott’s second quarter 2018 backlog.
