McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE:MDR) (“McDermott” or “the Company”) announced today that it has been awarded a three-year shallow water pipeline contract by Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sdn. Bhd. (“BSP”) to transport and install pipelines and umbilicals for the Champion and Ampa Fields offshore Brunei. Work is expected to be executed through 2017.

The full scope of work will be executed in annual work plans that are expected to be confirmed over the coming years as BSP finalizes its development plans and budgets. The work identified for 2015 will be included in McDermott’s fourth quarter 2014 backlog.

“Earlier this year we established a dedicated presence in Brunei and demonstrated outstanding execution delivering project certainty on the transportation and installation of four jackets for the BSP Champion Waterflood B2/3 development,” said David Dickson, President and Chief Executive Officer. “BSP’s confidence in our efficient planning, seamless offshore operations and excellent safety performance is demonstrated by the award of this significant new project, which is one of BSP’s largest contracts in recent years.”

The first scope of work consists of transportation and installation of more than 62 miles of pipelines including corrosion resistant alloy clad pipelines, as well as umbilicals and cables.

The McDermott Derrick Barge 30 and other vessels will be mobilized to support this initial work which will include hydro testing, pre-commissioning and salvage of redundant risers.

Brunei has significant long-term plans to increase investment and production in its energy sector, and the successful installation of these new pipelines in the Champion and Ampa fields is expected to help ensure the continuity of these mature reserves. McDermott’s contribution in developing these facilities plays a vital role in helping Brunei meet its energy goals.
