    J Ray awarded Dolphin platforms

    Yard News // January 23, 2004
    J Ray McDermott, the subsidiary of McDermott International, has been awarded a contract by Dolphin Energy Ltd of the United Arab Emirates for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of two integrated drilling and production platform complexes for Qatar's North Dome field development project.

    This contract is valued at over $190 million, and is part of Dolphin's approximately US$3.5 billion project to supply up to 3.2 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas from Qatar's North Field to the United Arab Emirates.

    The two platform complexes, DP1 and DP2, will each consist of a drilling and production platform, bridges and a flare tripod.

    The complexes will be located in shallow water (less than 185ft) and will weigh over 6,060 tons each.

    Detailed engineering is already underway at J Ray's engineering offices in Houston, Texas. The project management team will coordinate the project from J Ray's office in Jebel Ali, Dubai. Construction work is scheduled to begin at J Ray's Jebel Ali yardin May 2004.
