"Earlier this year we established a dedicated presence in Brunei and demonstrated outstanding execution delivering project certainty on the transportation and installation of four jackets for the BSP Champion Waterflood B2/3 development," McDermott president and CEO David Dickson said.

"BSP's confidence in our efficient planning, seamless offshore operations and excellent safety performance is demonstrated by the award of this significant new project, which is one of BSP's largest contracts in recent years."

The work is expected to take place in 2017 with the contract value not revealed.

"The first scope of work consists of transportation and installation of more than 62 miles of pipelines including corrosion resistant alloy clad pipelines, as well as umbilicals and cables," McDermott said.

"The McDermott Derrick Barge 30 and other vessels will be mobilised to support this initial work which will include hydro testing, pre-commissioning and salvage of redundant risers."

The complex Champion oil field on offshore Brunei has been in production since 1972.

The waterflood injection project is aiming to lift recoverable reserves by 200 million barrels of oil.
