McDermott Gains After Winning $2 Billion Contract: Houston Mover

Jan. 25 (Bloomberg) -- McDermott International Inc., a Houston-based energy services company, advanced 10 percent after winning a $2 billion contract for a liquefied-natural-gas drilling project off Australia.

McDermott gained $1.19 to $13.13 at 4:15 p.m. on the New York Stock Exchange. The shares have risen 14 percent this month and dropped 33 percent in the past year. McDermott fell 27 percent on Aug. 4 after second-quarter earnings fell short of expectations.

The Ichthys LNG project is a joint venture between Inpex Corp. and Total SA, with Inpex holding 76 percent, according to McDermott’s statement. McDermott will install subsea hardware, moorings, risers, umbilicals and flowlines.

McDermott is expected to report fourth-quarter and full-year earnings on March 1.
