US-based McDermott International has secured three offshore engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contracts for multiple fields in the Arabian Gulf.

In addition to these contracts with an undisclosed oil company, the company gained an additional scope on an existing contract in the same area.

McDermott said that these works include EPCI for jackets and topsides, subsea pipelines and cables.

The company intends to begin work on these projects through the fourth quarter of 2017 with engineering expected to be carried out by its teams in Dubai, UAE; and, Chennai, India.

"Works include EPCI for jackets and topsides, subsea pipelines and cables."

McDermott International Middle East vice-president Linh Austin said: "These awards are due, in part, to McDermott’s ability to provide a highly efficient solution with schedule certainty and draws upon our in-depth knowledge and experience working offshore in the Middle East area over many years."

McDermott’s teams in Dubai are responsible for procurement works, where fabrication of the structures will also be performed.

Marine installation is planned to be carried out by McDermott’s fleet of shallow water vessels.

In March, McDermott was awarded a contract by an upstream oil and gas operator for a project offshore in the Middle East.

The work scope included provision of services including engineering, procurement, fabrication, transportation and installation of offshore pipelines.

Project completion is expected by the end of this year.
