HOUSTON, May 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE:MDR) announced today that it has been awarded three separate projects by a major national oil company for the integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) services in multiple fields in the Arabian Gulf. In addition to this, there has also been an award of an additional scope on an existing contract, also being executed in the Arabian Gulf.

Work on the projects is expected to be executed through the fourth quarter of 2017.

Engineering is expected to be carried out by McDermott's specialist teams in Dubai, U.A.E.; and, Chennai, India. Procurement is expected to be performed by McDermott's specialist teams based in Dubai. Fabrication of the structures is scheduled to be undertaken by McDermott's Dubai-based fabrication facilities and marine installation is expected to be under taken by McDermott's specialist fleet of shallow water vessels.
