McDermott has been awarded a transportation and installation contract by PRIO (former PetroRio) for the Wahoo field, offshore Brazil.

Under the scope of the contract, McDermott will perform the transportation and installation of approximately 19 miles (30 kilometers) of coated 10-inch rigid pipelines and associated subsea structures. Once installed, the pipelines will connect the Wahoo field to the Frade floating production storage and offloading unit. The contract also includes an extension option for a second pipeline.

"This award is a reflection of our offshore installation expertise in the region," said Mahesh Swaminathan, McDermott's Senior Vice President, Subsea and Floating Facilities. "Our proven track record in subsea installations, state-of-the-art vessels, technical expertise, and collaborative approach positions us well for the successful delivery of this project."

The Wahoo field is located about 19 miles (30 kilometers) north of the already-producing Frade field in Brazil's Campos basin.

McDermott's team in Rio de Janeiro will oversee project management and engineering. The installation activities will be performed by one of McDermott's rigid pipelay vessels.
