McDermott International has secured an engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract from BP Trinidad & Tobago (bpTT) for the Angelin gasfield. 

McDermott previously completed a multi-phase engineering contract, which included pre-front-end engineering design (pre-FEED), FEED studies awarded by bpTT for the initial design and execution planning of the Angelin field, located 40km off the east coast of Trinidad and Tobago.

Engineering and execution planning for these projects was carried out from the company’s engineering centre located in Chennai, India.

McDermott Americas, Europe and Africa vice-president Scott Munro said: “This is a great opportunity for us to build on the relationship and trust developed through the execution of the FEED for the Angelin project.

"Through early engagement and aligning our respective goals, McDermott and bpTT have partnered to optimise the delivery of this very important project."

Under the new contract, McDermott will design, procure, fabricate, transport, install and commission a six-slot wellhead platform and 26in subsea pipeline at the field. 

In addition, the 992t four-legged main pile jacket and 1,323t four-deck topside for the Angelin project will be built at the company’s Altamira fabrication facility in Mexico. 

"Through early engagement and aligning our respective goals, McDermott and bpTT have partnered to optimise the delivery of this very important project."

McDermott plans to employ its DLV 2000 to install the pipelines and platforms. 

Angelin project is a dry gas development location within the northern Columbus Basin at depths of 65m.

Recovered gas will be transported to the Beachfield/Atlantic LNG and the liquids to the Galeota terminal through a new 26in diameter pipeline, which is 21km long.

Production of 600 million standard cubic of gas a day will be exported through the pipeline to the Serrette Facility and to the Cassia platform for further processing.
