McDermott International has been selected by BHP to perform the preliminary Front-End Engineering Design (pre-FEED) extension phase for a Floating Production Unit (FPU) that could be installed in a water depth of approx. 8,200 feet (2,500 meters) at the Trion field, located approx. 19 miles (30 kms) south of the U.S./Mexico border and approx. 112 miles (180 kms) from the Mexican coastline.

The pre-FEED extension is expected to create greater value for the project by concentrating on the optimization of the design and execution strategy.

'We look forward to building on our strong relationship with BHP and Pemex with this latest contract award for the next phase in the Trion Project for the Semi-Submersible FPU,' said Mark Coscio, Senior Vice President for McDermott's North, Central and South America region. 'We will work with the project to further develop the execution plan for Trion in order to optimize the design and pre-FEED scope for them.'

McDermott was awarded the contract for pre-FEED services for the Trion FPU in March 2020. Its scope includes engineering tasks related to the configuration, sizing and preliminary analysis of the FPU, including topsides, hull, risers and mooring.

McDermott will work in close partnership with Houston Offshore Engineering and Wood on the Pre-FEED extension. McDermott will lead a single, integrated team to perform project management, execution planning and estimation services. Houston Offshore Engineering and Wood will focus on engineering optimizations. Technical support for fabrication and integration planning will be provided by McDermott's fabrication yards in Batam, Indonesia, and Altamira, Mexico.

McDermott is currently delivering the subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF), transportation and installation (T&I) and pre-commissioning of one jacket and topsides for the BHP Ruby Project located offshore Trinidad and Tobago.
