McDermott and Petrofac form strategic allianceNews // March 30, 2015
McDermott International and Petrofac Limited have formed a strategic marketing alliance to pursue top-tier deepwater subsea, umbilical, riser and flowline (SURF) projects.
The five-year alliance expects to provide oil and gas companies with a competitive, integrated solution across a broad range of complex engineer, procure, construct, install (EPCI) subsea projects in deep and ultra-deepwater across the US Gulf of Mexico, Mexico, Brazil, the North Sea, Mediterranean and West Africa.
Leveraging the complementary capabilities and experience of both companies, the alliance will open up further EPCI opportunities by combining McDermott’s specialty SURF fleet, its new derrick lay vessel DLV 2000 and strong subsea fabrication capability with Petrofac’s world class JSD 6000 installation vessel.
Currently under construction, JSD 6000 complements McDermott’s vessels, offering top-tier functionality for a wide range of ultra-deepwater pipelay, subsea lowering and above surface construction work, through its combined J-lay, S-lay and ultra-heavy lift capabilities.
