McDermott said Feb. 1 it won two engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contracts from North Oil Co. (NOC) for the Ruya Development offshore Qatar.

The Ruya project includes the addition of platforms and debottlenecking pipelines and is part of the expansion of the Al-Shaheen field, Qatar's largest oil field. NOC, a joint venture of QatarEnergy and TotalEnergies, operates the field.

The first contract is valued at more than $1.5 billion, and it was awarded to a consortium of McDermott and Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan. Scope includes installing nine satellite wellhead platforms and jackets in two offshore campaigns.

The second contract is valued at between $500 million and $750 million and was awarded to a consortium of McDermott and Hyundai Heavy Industries for one 25,000 metric ton central processing platform, flare platform and bridges.

Mike Sutherland, McDermott's senior vice president for offshore Middle East, said in a press release the awards build on McDermott’s front-end engineering design (FEED) project, which it completed in just over 12 months.

Neil Gunnion, McDermott’s Qatar country manager and vice president for operations, said in a press release, “We have been on this journey with NOC since our Doha operating center started the pre-FEED in 2021.”
