«This award demonstrates our strategic commitment to support India’s domestic energy goals and to broaden our portfolio with PMC services,» said Samik Mukherjee, McDermott’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. «Our experienced workforce in Gurgaon and Chennai will apply their deep knowledge in downstream refining technology and in local project execution to work as a strategic partner, supporting the expansion of India’s refining capacity.»
