McDermott International Inc. said on June 24 it has been awarded a large contract from Saudi Aramco for engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) services in the Marjan and Zuluf fields, offshore Saudi Arabia.
The contract includes the full suite of EPCI services for the relocation of control rooms in Zuluf GOSP-4, Marjan GOSP 2 and 3 including the fabrication of new control rooms, boat landings and new jacket members, as well as the upgrade of all control systems as required.
“McDermott’s extensive history with Saudi Aramco and our commitment to the continued growth of Saudi Arabia’s energy sector is reflected in this award,” Linh Austin, McDermott’s senior vice president of Middle East and North Africa, said.
The project is scheduled to be fully executed from McDermott’s Al Khobar office and Dammam fabrication facility, in line with its strategic focus to strengthen In-Kingdom content.
Work on the project will begin immediately and the contract award will be reflected in McDermott’s second-quarter 2019 backlog.
McDermott defines a large contract as between $50 million and $250 million.
