McDermott Secures an EPC Contract from bpTT

02 February 2019

McDermott International, Inc. has announced a significant contract award by BP Trinidad & Tobago, LLC (bpTT) for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the Cassia Compression Platform, located 35 miles (57km) southeast off the coast of Trinidad.

McDermott will provide engineering, procurement, construction, hook-up and commissioning of the 8,928 ton (8,100-metric ton) Cassia C topsides, a 3,747 ton (3,400-metric ton) jacket and a 793 ton (720-metric ton) bridge to link Cassia C with the existing Cassia B platform that currently sits in 223 feet (68 m) of water. The scope also includes Brownfield modifications at Cassia B. The compression platform will be fabricated and constructed at McDermott's world-class fabrication facility in Altamira, Mexico.

Cassia C is bpTT's third Cassia platform, handling gas coming from its operations in the prolific Columbus basin. Cassia C will receive 1.2 billion standard cubic feet per day (BSCFD) of hydrocarbon gas through new piping from Cassia B across the bridge. The gas will be compressed and returned to Cassia B for export. Liquids from Cassia C and Cassia B will be combined and boosted for export.
