Unocal Thailand Ltd. has awarded J. Ray McDermott SA a platform construction contract for the North Pailin development in the Gulf of Thailand.

The platform will enable production of 200 MMcfd of gas and 11,000 b/d of condensate.

The deal includes fabrication, transportation, installation, hookup, and precommissioning of the central processing platform and a tripod-supported flare bridge assembly. Financial terms were not disclosed.

McDermott said the platform substructure will be a conventional eight-leg jacket. The 12,500-ton topsides will be constructed in modules, comprising a support frame and three modules, along with a 400-ft flare bridge.

The facilities will be built at the McDermott yard on Batam Island, Riau, Indonesia. Work will begin early in 2001 and take 13 months.

McDermott will move the structures to the site by barge and use its DB30 vessel to install the platform.
