McDermott Caspian Contractors Rceives 4 Awards

Azerbaijan, Baku, 19 March / Trend / McDermott Caspian Contractors, Inc. (McDermott), a subsidiary of J. Ray McDermott (J. Ray), received recently four awards for outstanding achievements in the company marine operations and Health, Safety, Environment and Security (HSES) performance, the company said.

McDermott's Caspian Marine Fabrication Yard and the Sangachal Beach Pull and Near Shore Trenching operations group received BP-Azerbaijan President's Awards for completing all pipe laying work associated with the Azeri, Chirag and deepwater Gunashli and Shah Deniz projects, operated by BP, without a single recordable injury.

Commenting on the significance of the success, Dan Houser, General Manager and Vice President, Caspian, said: "This is a world-class achievement which is particularly remarkable-taking into consideration the efforts made to recruit the Marine Fabrication Yard team from scratch, train riggers, welders and supervisors, upgrading the yard itself, establishing the maintenance and support infrastructure and developing a reliable chain of vendors and suppliers."

Also in the recognition of Marine Fabrication Facility's outstanding performance, J. Ray McDermott honored the group with the company's own 2007 President's Award. Top honors went to the crew for operating more than three years - from start of operations in 8Oct 2004 to 30Nov 2007, the nomination period without a recordable incident.

The fourth award recognizes the top performance of the crew members of the pipelay barge Israfil Huseynov (PLBG) for their outstanding achievement in meeting McDermott's corporate Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) in 2007. In his Letter of Commendation, Tim Chetwynd, J. Ray's Global Director HSES, wrote: "To meet our corporate rate of 0.66 is no small achievement. In fact, it represents a performance that is as much as ten times better than an average American company. The PLBG team had an incident rate of 0.44, and is now one of only four J. Ray McDermott barge crews that have achieved this target to date. Your outstanding efforts over the past year qualify you as an HSES leader within J. Ray and ultimately, a true champion."

"To meet the corporate rate and achieve an incident rate of 0.44 is superb," said Dan Houser. "We are continuously striving to maintain high quality and safety standards in our daily work. I express my appreciation to our Caspian Marine Division for their work, their dedication to our high standards and for their great contribution to this achievement," said Dan Houser.
