McDermott wins Megalodon job

McDermott has landed a contract to install a platform in the US Gulf of Mexico for Walter Oil & Gas.

The contractor will transport and install the 3300-tonne jacket and 2100 topsides on South Timbalier Block 311 for the US independent.

The six-pile Megalodon platform will be placed over an existing drill site.

Installation operations are set to begin in the fourth quarter.

No financial details of the contract were disclosed.

In October last year, Gulf Island Fabrication secured the deal to build the jacket, piles and topsides.
