McDermott International, Inc. says that one of its subsidiaries was awarded a transportation, installation and pre-commissioning contract by PC Ketapang II Ltd, a subsidiary of PETRONAS, for the Bukit Tua Development Project in the Ketapang block of East Java, Indonesia. The contract will be included in McDermott's fourth quarter backlog.
'McDermott is uniquely positioned to support the fast track nature of the Bukit Tua development that is critical to provide energy to power a key industrial area in Gresik, Indonesia,' said Hugh Cuthbertson, Vice President and General Manager, Asia Pacific. 'This is the second award we have received related to the Bukit Tua Development this year. We are currently fabricating the 1,212-ton BTJT-A wellhead jacket at our Batam Island fabrication facility in Indonesia, where construction work is on track and expected to complete in November 2014.'
