McDermott has been awarded an engineering, procurement, and removal contract for offshore decommissioning work by Woodside Energy. The award is for the full removal of the Stybarrow disconnectable turret mooring (DTM) buoy, as part of the decommissioning of the Stybarrow field located in the northwest Cape of Western Australia.

Under the contract scope, McDermott will provide project management and engineering services for the recovery, transportation and offloading of the DTM buoy to a suitable onshore yard facility for dismantling and disposal.

"This award not only demonstrates McDermott's proven track record in undertaking deepwater projects of diverse scopes, but it also highlights the critical importance of decommissioning in the offshore industry," said Mahesh Swaminathan, McDermott's Senior Vice President, Subsea and Floating Facilities. "With our seamless integration of engineering, fabrication, and offshore mobilization expertise, we believe we are well-equipped to execute this project efficiently and responsibly, ensuring the safe recovery and removal of the Stybarrow DTM buoy."

McDermott's Perth-based team will oversee project management, while engineering and fabrication support will be provided by the team in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Batam, Indonesia. The DTM buoy will be lifted and removed utilizing McDermott's DLV2000 vessel, ensuring safe and efficient operations throughout the decommissioning process.
