McDermott awarded subsea contract for Petrobras in Brazil
HOUSTON -- McDermott International, Inc. announced that one of its subsidiaries has entered into an agreement with Petrobras for a short-term charter to supply its subsea construction vessel North Ocean 102 (NO102).
The NO102 will carry out deepwater umbilical and flexible pipe installation offshore Brazil, and is expected to begin work during third-quarter 2014. Petrobras previously employed another of McDermott’s pipelay support vessels, the Agile.
The NO102 is a fast-transit, dynamically-positioned vessel with a high top tension vertical lay system for SURF needs that operates across a wide variety of water depths.
