Qatar Petroleum has awarded a contract to McDermott Middle East for front end engineering design (FEED) of offshore pipelines and topsides facilities for its North Field Expansion Project.

McDermott Middle East will provide engineering and design services for eight unmanned wellhead platform topsides, four 38 inch trunk lines and four 28 inch intrafield lines. The scope of work is expected to complete in 12 months.

Qatar Petroleum president and CEO Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi said: “The offshore topsides and pipelines are an important component of the North Field Expansion Project’s implementation. We are pleased to have McDermott take part in this important effort.

“This award comes on the heels of a series of announcements for other components of the project that are all important milestones towards delivering our strategy of increasing Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 77 to 110 million tons per annum, which is progressing well and according to plan on all fronts.”

Earlier in May, Qatar Petroleum awarded two contracts to procure a total of eight offshore jack-up drilling rigs as a part of its North Field expansion project.

Gulf Drilling International (GDI) will deliver six rigs, while the remaining two will be provided by Northern Offshore Drilling Operations.
