HOUSTON, Nov. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- McDermott has been awarded a sizeable* engineering, procurement, removal and disposal contract by Santos.

"Our successful, proven track record of project delivery spans the entire energy value chain," said Mahesh Swaminathan, McDermott's Senior Vice President, Subsea and Floating Facilities. "This decommissioning award reflects the commitment we share with Santos to timely, safe, and environmentally responsible removal of infrastructure at the end of its operational life cycle. We look forward to continuing to be part of delivering their sustainability commitments while also contributing to the circular economy for a lower carbon future.

Project management and engineering will be executed by McDermott's team in Perth, Australia, with support from Batam, Indonesia and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
