Saudi Aramco has extended the tender closing date for another offshore contract

Saudi Aramco has received bids for an estimated $15m offshore engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract.

Contractors from Aramco’s Long-Term Agreement (LTA) pool of contractors submitted offers on 17 May for the package known as Contracts Release and Purchase Order (CRPO) 61. It involves brownfield work to refurbish and position a production platform on a production header at Juaymah on the Marjan offshore field development.

Aramco has also given additional bidding time to LTA contractors for the estimated $165m CRPO 60. The bid submission deadline for the refurbishment work, which may require heavy lifting of approximately 35t, has been extended to 14 June from 17 May.

CRPO 60 is the revised tender for CRPO 58, which called for similar EPCI works on the Marjan field.
