McDermott International has secured a large contract award from Saudi Aramco to provide engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) services in the Marjan and Zuluf fields located offshore Saudi Arabia.

According to the company, a large contract value ranges between $50m and $250m.

The company will provide full suite of EPCI services for the relocation of control rooms in Zuluf GOSP-4, Marjan GOSP 2 and 3. McDermott will also be responsible for the fabrication of new control rooms, boat landings and new jacket members, and will modernise all control systems based on the requirement.

McDermott International Middle East and North Africa senior vice-president Linh Austin said: “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.

“We have a long track record of executing similar upgrade projects and believe that by working closely with our clients we can offer industry leading solutions which are suited to this evolving market segment.”

The company will completely execute the project from its Al Khobar office and Dammam fabrication facility, with work set to start immediately.

In March 2019, a subsidiary of McDermott International signed a lease agreement with Saudi Aramco to establish a fabrication facility in Saudi Arabia.

The agreement awards a lease to McDermott Arabia Company for the construction of the facility which will be dedicated to large scale fabrication of offshore platforms and onshore/offshore modules.
