McDermott said it has been awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract from Shell Trinidad and Tobago Limited for the Manatee gas development project as part of a competitive FEED process. 

Under the contract scope, the Texan company will provide comprehensive FEED services for a wellhead platform, export pipeline system, shore approach, midstream pipeline and onshore control room.

This award follows the successful completion of an early contract engagement with Shell and leverages McDermott’s key engineering, procurement, construction and installation capabilities.

Mahesh Swaminathan, McDermott’s Senior Vice President, Subsea and Floating Facilities, said “The award of this next phase of the Manatee project builds on the portfolio of projects that McDermott’s Subsea and Floating Facilities business line is executing for Shell. McDermott’s comprehensive engineering design expertise and unique fabrication capabilities equip us to perform the required FEED work in-house, reduce costs, ensure quality and maximize time efficiencies.”

Engineering and execution planning efforts will be led by McDermott’s team in Houston with support from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Chennai, India and Altamira, Mexico.The Manatee field is located offshore Trinidad and Tobago in water depths of approximately 91 metres (299 feet). The field represents one of the country’s largest natural gas reserves discovered to date and will help bolster ailing gas output. There is a shared Loran Manatee reservoir shared between Trinidad and Venezuela. Manatee, on the Trinidad side, is estimated to have some 2.7 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of gas. However, the total reservoir is estimated to have about 10 tcf.
