McDermott International announced via press release that it has been awarded a detailed engineering and long lead procurement services contract from BP Trinidad & Tobago, LLC (bpTT) for the Cassia C Compression Platform, located 40 miles (65 kilometers) off the southeast coast of Trinidad and Tobago.

The contract follows McDermott’s award for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract for the Angelin project by bpTT last year.

According to the release, the Cassia C Compression project includes a new unmanned compression platform for the existing Cassia complex.  The facility will provide gas compression to the Cassia complex via a new bridge connected to Cassia B.  Cassia C is bpTT’s third Cassia platform, handling gas coming from its operations in the prolific Columbus basin.
