McDermott International, Inc., along with its joint venture partners Chiyoda International Corporation and Zachry Group, have announced that they have been awarded a contract in excess of USD 1.0 billion by Golden Pass Products LLC, a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil affiliates, to build the export project in Sabine Pass, Texas.

“McDermott has extensive experience in executing major projects along the US Gulf Coast,” says Richard Heo, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America. “We will apply not only our vertically-integrated capabilities but also some of the best practices and lessons learned for major construction projects in the region.

Work will commence in the first quarter of 2019 with a projected completion date in 2024.

The contract award will be reflected in McDermott’s first quarter 2019 backlog.
