McDermott Wins Another BPTT Gas Job

US contractor McDermott said March 5 it has landed a contract from BPTT in Trinidad & Tobago to work on an offshore gas platform. BPTT, which is 70% owned by BP and 30% by Repsol, is that country's leading gas producer.

The latest contract is for engineering and long lead procurement for the unmanned Cassia C compression platform, 65 km offshore Trinidad & Tobago, which will be BPTT’s third Cassia platform. It will provide gas compression from the Cassia B platform. Work will be led by McDermott’s team in Houston, with support from its engineering centre in Chennai, India.

The contract follows McDermott’s award for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning contract for the Angelin project by BPTT last year. Scott Munro, McDermott’s Vice President for Americas, Europe and Africa, said: “We plan to leverage off our successful experience with BP on the Angelin project.”  

BPTT said its Angelin platform is being built at McDermott's fabrication yard in Altamira, Mexico and that it will be BPTT’s 15th platform. It notes that the Angelin platform is due to arrive in Trinidad in the third quarter of this year and be installed in the fourth.  First gas from the facility is expected in 2019; the project was sanctioned in June 2017.
