J. Ray awarded Trinidad contract

Posted: 14 January 2009

McDermott International subsidiary, J. Ray McDermott, has been awarded a contract by BHP Billiton (Trinidad-2C) Limited for the Angostura Gas Export Platform project located 22 miles offshore the northeast coast of Trinidad.

Under the terms of the agreement, J. Ray will fabricate a 4,000-ton integrated topside platform; an 800-ton, four-legged jacket; and 1,000 tons of piles. The construction of these structures will take place at J. Ray's Morgan City, Louisiana fabrication facility.

"The award of the fabrication work for BHP is excellent news for our Morgan City fabrication facility," said Bob Deason, President and Chief Executive Officer of J. Ray.

"This project marks the third time in the recent past that Morgan City has performed the fabrication for facilities destined for Trinidad. Our customers depend on the quality and the schedule assurance that J. Ray delivers."

At peak, J. Ray will have almost 200 people in Morgan City working on the project. Work is expected to be completed in second quarter 2010.

The Greater Angostura Development is located in block 2C offshore Trinidad and Tobago. BHP Billiton (Trinidad-2C) Limited operates several production platforms in the area in water depths ranging from 85 to 190 feet.
