BHP awards Ruby contract

McDermott International has been awarded a large contract for BHP’s Ruby Project offshore Trinidad and Tobago.

The scope of the contract includes subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines, transportation and installation, pre-commissioning of one jacket and topsides for the Ruby Project – located approximately 45 km off the north-eastern coast of Trinidad.

McDermott Senior Vice President of North, Central and South America Mark Coscio says the company is pleased to support BHP in this new contract, building on its successful project works in the region.

“The combination of heavy lift and pipelay capabilities of McDermott’s Derrick Lay Vessel (DLV) 2000 are best suited for this project as it can efficiently transport and install both the flowlines and platform,” said Mr Coscio.

Last year, McDermott executed a similar installation scope for the BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) project and has been awarded an additional BPTT contract off the coast of Trinidad.

The engineering and project management of the project will be performed in Houston with engineering support from the company’s Mexico City office.

Project works will commence immediately and are anticipated for completion in August 2020.

McDermott defines a large contract as valued between US$50 million and US$250 million.
