Houston-based offshore services firm McDermott International has been awarded a pair of engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contracts by Saudi Aramco for the Marjan field, offshore Saudi Arabia.
The first contract includes the full suite of EPCI services for the upgrade of two existing platforms related to the installation of associated equipment for electrical submersible pumps and space for a future high integrity pressure protection system.
Linh Austin, senior VP of Middle East and North Africa, commented: “This award is testament to Saudi Aramco’s confidence in McDermott’s ability to execute this complex type of project.”
The other contract includes the design, procurement, fabrication, and installation, testing and pre-commissioning of the TP-10 tie-in platform, six gas lift topside modules and associated pipeline and subsea cables. Derrick Barge 50 and Derrick Barge 27 are scheduled to be utilised for the contract.
“This award demonstrates the strong market appeal of our value-driven and highly integrated offering of products and services,” Austin said.
McDermott says the value of the first contract is between $50m and $250m, while the second project is valued between $500m and $750m. Work on both projects will begin immediately.
