McDermott awarded EPCI projects by QatarEnergy

13 Jan 2022

McDermott International has won a mega offshore contract from QatarEnergy, a long standing key customer, to deliver engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) for the North Field East (NFE) topsides and the North Field East (NFE) offshore pipelines and subsea cables projects.

McDermott has decades of experience delivering world-class EPCI projects in Qatar, a historically strategic market. The project will be managed and engineered from the McDermott Doha office with significant fabrication taking place at QFAB, the McDermott-Nakilat joint venture fabrication yard in Qatar.

The NFE development will provide feed gas into the four new LNG trains currently under construction and, together with the NFS infrastructure, which will provide feed gas for the future additional two LNG trains, will enable an increase in total LNG production in Qatar from 77m tons per annum (MTPA) to 126 MTPA.

The scope of the contract includes the fabrication and installation of eight wellhead topsides (WHT) for NFE and a further five WHT for NFS. The significant subsea pipeline scope includes over 300 miles (500 kilometers) of pipelines and, in addition, McDermott will install over 140 miles (225 kilometers) of 33kV subsea cables and associated works.

For the first time, four of these WHT, plus all subsea infrastructure, will be fabricated in QFAB, improving the in-country execution platform to support future energy developments. The remaining fabrication will be done in collaboration with McDermott's facility in Batam, Indonesia.
