McDermott International (McDermott) has been awarded a detailed engineering and long lead procurement services contract for BPTT’s Cassia C compression platform – located 65 kilometres (40 miles) off Trinidad’s southeast coast.
“The Cassia C compression project includes a new unmanned compression platform for the existing Cassia complex.
The facility will provide gas compression to the Cassia complex via a new bridge connected to Cassia B. Cassia C is BPTT’s third Cassia platform, handling gas coming from its operations in the prolific Columbus basin,” McDermott said.
The company expects to use the Project Lifecycle Management (PLM) module from its new digital platform, Gemini XD, “to deliver advanced technology through project execution and the development of a digital twin of the complete system.”
McDermott also said its team in Houston plans to lead the engineering and execution with support from its engineering centre in Chennai, India.Announcing this on March 5, McDermott noted that the Cassia C compression platform contract follows its award last year for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract for BPTT’s Angelin project.McDermott’s Vice President for the Americas, Europe and Africa, Scott Munro said, “This award is significant, as we continue to build our relationship with BPTT through strong collaboration and predictability in our execution. We plan to leverage off our successful experience with BP on the Angelin project.”
