McDermott International said Monday that it has won a new offshore installation contract with Brunei Shell Petroleum Company.

The contract is for further pipeline work for 2017 under a multi-year offshore installation contract with Brunei Shell Petroleum Company.

The work includes transportation and installation (T&I) of pipelines and umbilicals in the Fairley and Ampa Fields in offshore Brunei.

The full scope of work for the 2017 campaign is expected to include T&I for 20 miles of pipelines, with the associated beach and pipeline crossings, tie-ins, riser installation and pre-commissioning of the completed system.

Houston-based McDermott said the 2017 campaign is part of a three-year work installation contract signed in 2014.

The contract will be included in the company’s second quarter 2016 backlog as a “sizeable project.”

The value of the contract was not disclosed.

“Brunei has significant long-term plans to increase investment and production in its energy sector and the successful installation of these new pipelines in the Ampa and Fairley fields is expected to help ensure production continuity of the mature reserves,” McDermott Vice President, Asia Hugh Cuthbertson said.

McDermott said the 2017 campaign calls for its Derrick Barge 30 (DB 30) to continue to be deployed for the execution of pipeline work in Brunei.

Both the DB 30 and Emerald Sea diving support vessel were deployed for the company’s successful 2015 campaign, one of the largest shallow water pipeline campaigns undertaken by McDermott Asia in recent years.
