Energy Voice | BP brings in McDermott for Trinidad platform hook-up

Oil giant BP has named McDermott International as the contractor for work on the Cassia C topsides off Trinidad.

The six-figure deal, estimated at more than £200 million, will see McDermott provide engineering, procurement, construction and hook-up of the topsides, jacket and bride.

The Houston-headquartered firm will complete fabrication of the compression platform from its Mexico facility before transportation to the Greater Cassia Area.

BP sanctioned two new gas developments offshore Trinidad in December – Cassia Compression and Matapal.

The first project will help BP produce low pressure gas reserves from existing fields in the Greater Cassia Area.

The project will involve the construction of the new platform, Cassia C, with first gas expected in the third quarter of 2021.

Richard Heo, McDermott’s senior vice president for North, Central and South America, said: “This award demonstrates how, through strong collaboration and consistent project execution, we continue to build our relationship with bpTT.

“To ensure project execution excellence, we will leverage our One McDermott Way operating model to safely and efficiently deliver the Cassia Compression Platform with the highest quality.”
