Graphic for News Item: McDermott completes first two jackets for Qatar Petroleum’s North Field

Qatar Petroleum has announced the completed fabrication of the first two jackets required for offshore facilities as part of its North Field Expansion (NFE) Project aimed to further develop one of the world’s largest offshore gas fields.

QP said on Wednesday that this mega project would increase Qatar’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) production capacity from 77 million tons per annum (Mtpa) to 110 Mtpa by 2024. Qatargas is executing this mega project on behalf of Qatar Petroleum.

Commenting on this occasion, Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, and Chairman of the Qatargas Board of Directors, said: “The successful, on-schedule completion of the first two jackets is a testament to our commitment to putting the various NFE project components in place, on time, and with the highest safety and quality standards.”

Minister Al-Kaabi added, “I would like to congratulate Qatargas and McDermott on this milestone achievement and to thank their collaboration with Qatar Petroleum in building these jackets in such a short time.”

A ceremony was held to mark this milestone in Batam, Indonesia, in the presence of Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer of Qatargas, Amer Mohd Al Theyab, Chargé d’Affaires of the State of Qatar in Indonesia, and executives from Qatar Petroleum, Qatargas, and McDermott.

Sheikh Khalid said, “I would like to congratulate everyone at Batam and the entire NFE team for safely and successfully delivering these first two jackets. It was very challenging to meet our schedule for sail-away and I have been delighted with the drive, teamwork and flexibility demonstrated by everyone to meet this goal. It clearly portrays the shared values of Qatargas and McDermott in areas of safety, quality, and high-caliber workforce.”

Qatargas’ CEO said, “I am delighted to note that this has been achieved safely, with over 1 million man hours without any lost time Injuries.”

The NFE project’s Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation contract for the jackets was awarded to McDermott in April 2019. McDermott was also awarded the Front End Engineering and Design contract for the associated topsides and pipelines in May 2019.

Earlier this week, QP said that the contribution from Qatar’s giant North Field in the Persian Gulf was expected to boost Qatar’s LNG production to 126 million tons per annum by 2027. This is a 64% increase from the current 77 mtpa.
