The Keathley Canyon Connector pipeline system with a 3,300-ton, four-leg platform in 350ft of water will use the pipeline junction facilities for the incoming deepwater pipelines from the Hadrian South and Lucius fields and for the outgoing shallow-water pipelines to shore.

The company will fabricate the facilities at its Morgan City facility in Louisiana.

McDermott may use its deepwater combination heavy lift and pipelay vessel DB50 for the installation of the facilities and start the offshore installation during the third quarter of 2013 and ready the facilities to be operational by the end of the year.

The contract value will be included in McDermott’s second quarter 2012 backlog.

US based McDermott is an engineering, procurement, construction and installation group of companies focused on executing complex offshore oil and gas projects.
