US-based engineering and construction company McDermott International has announced that its Indonesian subsidiary has won a contract to build offshore platforms and infield flowline in the country.

The contract was awarded by PC Muriah, an affiliate of PETRONAS Carigali, to develop the Kepodang gas field, situated about 180km northeast of Semarang, Central Java, in water depths of up to 70m.

Value of the contract was not disclosed.

Under the contract, McDermott will procure, build, install, and commission a 5,802t central processing platform, a 1,298t wellhead platform, a 2.7km long with 10in diameter infield flowline, and install remote control facilities at the onshore receiving facilities.

McDermott Asia Pacific senior vice president and general manager Scott Cummins said, "We are very pleased to undertake this competitively tendered project for Petronas in Indonesia."

The company has already started working on the procurement engineering and is planning for the fabrication of the facilities at the McDermott Batam yard in Indonesia.

The company will use different vessels from its fleet to transport and install the facilities.

McDermott is expecting to complete the project work including hookup and commissioning in the final quarter of 2014.
