McDermott’s strategic success begins, and ends, with our customers. We build long-standing client relationships through three operating areas (Americas, Europe & Africa, Middle East and Asia) with an unwavering focus on operational excellence and client engagement to deliver the best solution.


We design production facilities in multiple phases through increased levels of definition to manage risks and maximize value across all stages of project development.
