McDermott International completed its Pan-Malaysia transportation and installation projects for Sarawak Shell Berhad and SapuraOMV, located offshore Miri, Sarawak.
Awarded in November 2018, the contract included the transport and installation of jackets, topsides, and pipelines for the Gorek, Larak, and Bakong gas fields.
McDermott's vessel, the Derrick Barge 30, was used to install the structures and pipelines, including the longest corrosion resistant alloy pipeline in Malaysia. The company also fabricated risers and spools in its fabrication facility in Batam, Indonesia.
