McDermott International Inc. said Wednesday it received a contract to build a natural gas platform for use off the northwest coast of Western Australia.

The deal is part of a $4.6 billion project known as the North West Shelf Venture that seeks to ensure that one of Australia's richest petroleum fields continues commercial production for another quarter-century.

A unit of J. Ray McDermott SA was awarded a contract to construct the North Rankin B platform substructure and piles by Woodside Energy Ltd.

McDermott did not disclose the value of the contract but said such deals "are typically valued in excess of $100 million." Earlier this month a KBR (nyse: KBR - news - people ) Inc. joint venture received a $320 contract to build a platform for the North West Shelf Venture.
