Kuala Lumpur: McDermott International has won a transportation, installation and pre-commissioning contract from PC Ketapang II Ltd, a subsidiary of Petronas, for the Bukit Tua Development Project in the Ketapang block of East Java, Indonesia.

We are currently fabricating the 1,212-ton BTJT-A wellhead jacket at our Batam Island fabrication facility in Indonesia, where construction work is on track and expected to complete in November 2014.”
