McDermott and Nakilat-Keppel Marine Enter 5-Year Agreement in Qatar
McDermott and Nakilat-Keppel Offshore Marine (N-KOM) agreed to an exclusive cooperation agreement for offshore engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) projects within Qatari waters.
N-KOM is a joint venture between Qatar’s Nakilat and Keppel Offshore & Marine that provides ship repair and an offshore construction facility at the Erhama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma shipyard in Qatar.
McDermott will serve as prime contractor to customers, lead engineering with its teams based in Dubai and its global engineering center in Chennai, India, and lead procurement and installation with vessels mobilized from its global marine fleet. N-KOM will serve as subcontractor and perform fabrication from its Qatar facility.
Qatar is a key growth region for McDermott. Last March, the company was awarded a large project for a new jacket, temporary deck, and replacement umbilical by Qatar Petroleum for the North Field Alpha gas development offshore Qatar. The brownfield contract includes front-end engineering design verification, detailed EPCI and commissioning of a new six-legged, 15-slot wellhead jacket and temporary drill deck, with a total weight of about 5,000 tons. The work also includes the decommissioning, removal, replacement, and precommissioning of 2.6 miles of composite umbilical and a fiber-optic cable in the Maydan Mahzam field.
Over the past 20 years, the company has fabricated more than 80% of the North Field gas infrastructure. The installation of the jacket at the North Field Alpha complex was completed recently.
